Applied, with this extra comment:


Committer note:

Freeing namep, which is the address of the first entry of the 'struct
ins' that is the first member of struct disasm_line would in fact free
that disasm_line instance, if it was allocated via malloc/calloc, which,
later, would a dereference of freed memory.
