describe_command should respect `path' argument. Looking up in the hash table
may gives incorrect index in entry.u.index and finally causes incorrect output
or SIGSEGV.

True, but only when a path is passed in. If the default path is used, 
looking up in the hash table is correct, and printing tracked aliases is 
intentional.

If it's desirable to drop that feature, then it should be dropped 
completely, code shouldn't be left in that can no longer be used. But 
it's possible to keep it working: how about this instead?

Your patch looks better than mine :)

Please consider post this patch to busybox as well.
Their ash has same code and same issue.

See http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2017-May/085459.html
