Hi,

A RabbitMQ 3.6.11-rc.3 node crashed when OTP 20.0.2 segfaulted. This is the
only information that we have about the Erlang VM itself:

    Aug 16 04:08:59 localhost kernel: [61139.180699] 2_scheduler[15162]:
segfault at 5c ip 00000000005ba760 sp 00007f8fea1ffc40 err
or 4 in beam.smp[400000+333000]

This is the last line logged by RMQ, 2 seconds before the Erlang VM
segfault:

    =INFO REPORT==== 16-Aug-2017::04:08:57 === closing AMQP connection
<0.24230.9> (10.0.16.35:42562 -> 10.0.16.23:5672, vhost: '/', user: 'admin')

beam.smp runs with the following flags:

    /var/vcap/packages/erlang-20.0.2/lib/erlang/erts-9.0.2/bin/beam.smp -W

We are running on:

    4.4.0-83-generic #106~14.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Mon Jun 26 18:10:19 UTC 2017
x86_64 GNU/Linux

When this happens again, how do I capture more debugging information? I
would like to file an OTP bug report, but I'm not sure that we have enough
information.

Apparently, this was reported at least once before, against OTP 18.1:
https://github.com/rabbitmq/rabbitmq-server/issues/459

Thank you, Gerhard.
