we debuged the code, and found that targets information storing in the
list dmt->head which fetching from kernel by executing dm_task_run()
is null.

since status is not initioned to null, so after calling
dm_get_next_target(dmt, next, &start, &length,&target_type,
&status),status becaming wild pointer, which lead snprintf() into the
situation of segment faulty.
