malloc function receives a negative size value in method addFromString

static ZIPARCHIVE_METHOD(addFromString)
	struct zip *intern;

        ze_obj->buffers[pos] = (char *)emalloc(buffer_len + 1);<- using with out check it value
	memcpy(ze_obj->buffers[pos], buffer, buffer_len + 1); 

	zs = zip_source_buffer(intern, ze_obj->buffers[pos], buffer_len, 0);

Test script:
ini_set('memory_limit', -1);
$v1=str_repeat("A", 0x7fffffff);

$zip = new ZipArchive;
$res = $zip->open('', ZipArchive::CREATE);
if ($res === TRUE) {
    $zip->addFromString('test.txt', $v1);
    echo 'ok';
} else {
    echo 'failed';

Expected result:
No crash

Actual result:
