golang-goyaml is a go translation of libyaml and shouldn't share
implementation flaws, but may share design flaws

There are no details about a fix for this vulnerability or a
comment from the upstream developers as of 2024-06-19, but like
the other CVEs from the same reporter this is likely a misuse
of the API and the CVE will likely get rejected. Marking as
deferred for now to make sure.
