x86/a.out: Clear the dump structure initially
dump_thread32() in aout_core_dump() does not clear the user32 structure allocated on the stack as the first thing on function entry. As a result, the dump.u_comm, dump.u_ar0 and dump.signal which get assigned before the clearing, get overwritten. Rename that function to fill_dump() to make it clear what it does and call it first thing. This was caught while staring at a patch by Derek Robson <robsonde@gmail.com>.
