connector: Added coredumping event to the process connector
Process connector can now also detect coredumping events. Main aim of patch is get notified at start of coredumping, instead of having to wait for it to finish and then being notified through EXIT event. Could be used for instance by process-managers that want to get notified as soon as possible about process failures, and not necessarily beeing notified after coredump, which could be in the order of minutes depending on size of coredump, piping and so on.
