[PATCH] Get core dump code to work...
The file based core dump code was broken by pipe changes - a relative llseek returns the absolute file position on success, not the relative one, so dump_seek() always failed when invoked with non-zero current position. Only success/failure can be tested with relative lseek, we have to trust kernel that on success we've got right file offset. With this fix in place I have finally real core files instead of 1KB fragments...
