coredump masking: add an interface for core dump filter
This patch adds an interface to set/reset flags which determines each memory segment should be dumped or not when a core file is generated. /proc/<pid>/coredump_filter file is provided to access the flags. You can change the flag status for a particular process by writing to or reading from the file. The flag status is inherited to the child process when it is created.
