	Finally got a decent backtrace out of it.

Program terminated with signal 6, Aborted.
#0  0x0807528b in kill ()
(gdb) bt
#0  0x0807528b in kill ()
#1  0x080708ab in raise ()
#2  0x08070276 in abort ()
#3  0x08059cd7 in _mpanic ()
#4  0x08059e7f in _slabfree ()
#5  0x08059f98 in free ()
#6  0x0805560b in show_info (path=0x28090a4c "/roots") at cmd_info.c:185
#7  0x08055696 in hammer_cmd_info () at cmd_info.c:61
#8  0x08048bf0 in main (ac=Cannot access memory at address 0x5
) at hammer.c:310

	Which I think reveals the problem - line 185 of cmd_info.c is
free(mountedon) - mountedon (if set) is the path argument to show_info
which comes from the getmntinfo() call on line 51. According to man
getmntinfo the returned data is an array of statfs structures which
(according to man statfs) contain fixed sized arrays for the mount point
name not allocated pointers.

	So in short I'm pretty sure mountedon should not be being freed,
commenting out the free on line 185 does make hammer info work for me.
