Ugh subject should be xfs_db of course :/

Segmentation fault

it dies when pthread code gets a null ptr, like this:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x0000003ef1c08309 in pthread_mutex_lock () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0
#1  0x000000000044f5af in cache_node_put (cache=0x25a2030, node=0x0) at

#3  0x0000000000416157 in init (argc=2, argv=0x7fffd9e19798) at init.c:125
#4  0x000000000041635a in main (argc=48, argv=0x7fffd9e19798) at init.c:153
when reading the root inode fails, and we try to libxfs_iput it anyway.

The following seems to fix it ...
