 I have found two possible memory exceptions under `rtems_shell_init` when
 running on the raspberry pi 1 BSP.

 First, a possible null pointer dereference from `getpwuid_r(0, &pwd, NULL,
 0, &pwd_res);` in `rtems_shell_init_once`. The NULL pointer is never
 checked before it is used as a backing buffer for `pwd`.

 Second, usage of `stdin`, `stdout`, and `stderr` cause memory exceptions
 in `rtems_shell_run` when used, for example `shell_env->parent_stdin  =
