/* Core file format: The core file is written in such a way that gdb
 * can understand it and provide useful information to the user (under
 * linux we use the 'trad-core' bfd).  There are quite a number of
 * obstacles to being able to view the contents of the floating point
 * registers, and until these are solved you will not be able to view
 * the contents of them.  Actually, you can read in the core file and
 * look at the contents of the user struct to find out what the
 * floating point registers contain.
 * The actual file contents are as follows:
 *   1 page consisting of a user struct that tells gdb what is present
 *   in the file.  Directly after this is a copy of the task_struct,
 *   which is currently not used by gdb, but it may come in useful at
 *   some point.  All of the registers are stored as part of the
 *   upage.  The upage should always be only one page.
 * DATA:
 *   The data area is stored.  We use current->end_text to
 *   current->brk to pick up all of the user variables, plus any
 *   memory that may have been malloced.  No attempt is made to
 *   determine if a page is demand-zero or if a page is totally
 *   unused, we just cover the entire range.  All of the addresses are
 *   rounded in such a way that an integral number of pages is
 *   written.
 *   We need the stack information in order to get a meaningful
 *   backtrace.  We need to write the data from (esp) to
 *   current->start_stack, so we round each of these off in order to
 *   be able to write an integer number of pages.  The minimum core
 *   file size is 3 pages, or 12288 bytes.

/* When the kernel dumps core, it starts by dumping the user struct -
 * this will be used by gdb to figure out where the data and stack segments
 *  are within the file, and what virtual addresses to use.
struct user {
      /* We start with the registers, to mimic the way that "memory" is returned
       * from the ptrace(3,...) function.  */
      struct user_context     regs;

      unsigned long           start_code;     /* Starting virtual address of text. */

                                     * This is actually the bottom of the stack,
                                     * the top of the stack is always found in the
                                     * esp register.  */
