Add MMF_DUMP_ELF_HEADERS
This adds the MMF_DUMP_ELF_HEADERS option to /proc/pid/coredump_filter. This dumps the first page (only) of a private file mapping if it appears to be a mapping of an ELF file. Including these pages in the core dump may give sufficient identifying information to associate the original DSO and executable file images and their debugging information with a core file in a generic way just from its contents (e.g. when those binaries were built with ld --build-id). I expect this to become the default behavior eventually. Existing versions of gdb can be confused by the core dumps it creates, so it won't enabled by default for some time to come. Soon many people will have systems with a gdb that handle these dumps, so they can arrange to set the bit at boot and have it inherited system-wide. This also cleans up the checking of the MMF_DUMP_* flag bits, which did not need to be using atomic macros.
