    Cool stuff! However, it's not working (2.6.20.6):

    Core dump to |/home/caker/bin/dumper.pl.4442 pipe failed

    even though...

    # cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_uses_pid
    0
    # cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
    |/home/caker/bin/dumper.pl

    Looking at the code, it seems to me that format_corename() is appending
    .pid, regardless if !core_uses_pid and corename[0]=='|', in which case
    it creates an invalid path for call_usermodehelper_pipe().

    Bug in the code, or bug in my methods?
