I don't understand how you can't understand the clear and detailed
commit message

  Refine code to make it more safely

Your Fedora Live ISO is malicious, and our more safely code cannot
accept it.

If you're not satisfied with the above analysis, why don't you look at
the code? The patch modifies only 21 files, and it covers tightly
coupled modules only, like the IPv4 driver and the HII database driver.

PS: enable debug output the way it is documented in OvmfPkg/README, and
check which ASSERT() added by 523f48e7 fails.
