I agree, I feel it can be simplified...

I must have missed something. Do you really suggest to use

If nothing else, this code depends on CONFIG_PROC_FS. But in any
case I think this will only complicate fill_files_note().

coredump is "simple", we are the last thread which can play with
this ->mm. We do not need locks, we do not need the "restart after
we dropped mmap_sem" logic. We know that the task_struct can't go
away. The only problem is rename, that is why we can't allocate the
whole buffer beforehand.

OK, I must have missed something ;)
