SubjectRe: [Feature Request?] Inline compression of process core dumps

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?
