Description (partial)

A unexpected reload triggers on a Catalyst 9200 when the command "show monitor capture <capture_name> buffer brief" is used.

The crash triggers by a segmentation fault:
 UNIX-EXT-SIGNAL: Segmentation fault(11)
The process that triggers the crash changes if the command is used through:
 - SSH
 - Console

The device is configured with a control-plane packet capture:
 - monitor capture CAPTURE control-plane both match any
 - monitor capture CAPTURE start
 - show monitor capture CAPTURE buffer brief | include <filter>

The reload triggers with any of these scenarios after the capture buffer has data in it :
 - Specific control-plane traffic packet (NULL)
 - Very high rate of control-plane traffic capture
