    Why are you passing it as an extra argument when you could just use
    mm->coredump_omit_anon_shared here:

    > + if (!maydump(vma, omit_anon_shared))

    And here:

    Actually, I think I would just pass the mm pointer you have into maydump() and
    let that dereference it here:

    > + if (omit_anon_shared) {

    which would then be:

    if (mm->coredump_omit_anon_shared) {

    Then the calls to maydump() would be:

    if (!maydump(vma, mm))


    phdr.p_filesz = maydump(vma, current->mm) ? sz : 0;

    I wouldn't worry, were I you, about the setting changing whilst it's being
    used. If you are worried about that, you can probably do some locking against
