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
