Subject[Patch 7/21] Define API for reading arch specif Program Headers for Core
The binfmt ELF defines APIs for the "arch" specific Program headers to be 
written to the ELF core. Define the "read" (or copy) variants of the APIs, to
collect it for the application core dump(which is a read based approach).
