As noted in another post, I cannot reproduce the problems with gptboot,
but with FreeBSD-11.2-PRERELEASE-i386-20180420-r332802, I do indeed see
w and uptime crashing in libxo:

#8  0x00000000 in ?? ()

Not sure if this has anything to do with clang though, it looks more
like a double free to me, at first glance.  I'll do some debugging.
