This commit breaks bootstrap for me:

    Backtrace after malloc arena is corrupted
    
    Without this change, if the malloc arena is corrupted and then
    'backtrace' is called, the backtrace can crash because 'backtrace'
    calls 'malloc'.  For more, please see:
    https://sourceware.org/ml/libc-alpha/2015-02/msg00678.html
    * emacs.c (main): Initialize tables used by 'backtrace'.
    * sysdep.c (emacs_backtrace): Document the newly used part of the API.

On my system's glibc version, glibc-2.16-30.fc18.i686, it seems that a
zero size argument to backtrace causes a segfault; minimal example
attached:

$ gcc -Wall backtrace.c
$ env -i ./a.out
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
