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

Cool stuff! However, it's not working (

Core dump to |/home/caker/bin/ pipe failed

even though...

# cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_uses_pid
# cat /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

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?
