coredump: add a new elf note with siginfo of the signal
Existing PRSTATUS note contains only si_signo, si_code, si_errno fields from the siginfo of the signal which caused core to be dumped. There are tools which try to analyze crashes for possible security implications, and they want to use, among other data, si_addr field from the SIGSEGV. This patch adds a new elf note, NT_SIGINFO, which contains the complete siginfo_t of the signal which killed the process.
