SubjectPATCH Multithreaded core dump support for the 2.5.14 (and 15) kernel.
Date
The following patch for 2.5.14 kernel, applies cleanly to the 2.5.15 kernel.

This work has been tested on the 2.5.14 kernel using a few pthread applications to dump core, from SIGQUIT and SIGSEV.
This unit test has been done on both 2 and 4 way systems. Further, some stress testing has been done where, the core
files have been created while the system is under schedule stress from the chat room benchmark running while creating
the core files. This implementation seems to be quit stable under a busy scheduler, YMMV. These test programs are
available uppon request ;)

This version of the patch cleans up all the issues that have been raised with it to date.
1) down_right(p->mm_sem) bug in my last patch, FIXED.
2) suspend/resume_thread function names too generic, make tcore specific, FIXED
3) Too man locks grabbed in resume_threads function, FIXED

Useage: echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/core_dumps_threads
enables the multithreaded core file creation.

Check your version of gdb. I hear 5.2 will work without a problem. If you have 5.1 you may need to "strip libpthread*"
to work around some issues that version has with loading pthread symbols with these core files.

Most of the patch is the same as that posted on 3/21/02, by Vamsi, with some minor fixes and the
rebasing to the 2.5.14 kernel. The interesting bits are in the additions to sched.c to pause and resume
the thread processes under the O(1) scheduler.
