    SubjectRe: [PATCH] exec: Make do_coredump more robust and safer when using pipes in core_pattern

    Ok, heres a new version of the changeset, taking into account all of your notes,
    Andrew. Patches tested by me on a kernel with your latest -mm patch and it all
    works well.

    This resolves bug 13355:

    Change Notes:

    1) Split the patch into two smaller patches. I kept the sysctl with the wait
    code for the reasons we discussed earlier.

    2) core_dump_count is now statically declared within the scope of the
    do_coredump function

    3) Commented more clearly the use of the task_tgid_vnr call

    4) Made the printk indicating that a crash is over the core dump limit more

    5) Fixed some misc. gramatical, formatting errors

    6) Removed the helper_pid variable. Turns out it wasn't needed with a minor
    change to the usermodehelper code.

    7) Documented the sysctl in Documentation/sysctl/kernel.txt
