coredump: format_corename: fix the "core_uses_pid" logic
I don't understand why the multi-thread coredump implies the core_uses_pid behaviour, but we shouldn't use mm->mm_users for that. This counter can be incremented by get_task_mm(). Use the valued returned by coredump_wait() instead. Also, remove the "const char *pattern" argument, format_corename() can use core_pattern directly.
