instance Show (Ptr a)

The GHC docs claim Ptr a is an instance of Eq, Ord and Show, but it
doesn't actually seem to have a Show instance.  At least the docs should
reflect the fact that there is not instance; preferably, could someone
actually make an instance?  It would be nice (primarily for debugging
purposes) to be able to see where the allocations from malloc, newArray,
etc took place.
