Limit the number of elements in a consdiff hash line.

This avoids performing and then freeing a lot of small mallocs() if
the hash line has too many elements.

Fixes one case of bug 40472; resolves OSS-Fuzz 38363.  Bugfix on when the consdiff parsing code was introduced.

o Minor bugfixes (performance, DoS):
- Fix one case of a not-especially viable denial-of-service attack found
by OSS-Fuzz in our consensus-diff parsing code. This attack causes a
lot small of memory allocations and then immediately frees them: this
is only slow when running with all the sanitizers enabled. Fixes one
case of bug 40472; bugfix on
