      Don't dump task struct in a.out core-dumps · 0eead9ab

      akiphie points out that a.out core-dumps have that odd task struct
      dumping that was never used and was never really a good idea (it goes
      back into the mists of history, probably the original core-dumping
      code).  Just remove it.
      
      Also do the access_ok() check on dump_write().  It probably doesn't
      matter (since normal filesystems all seem to do it anyway), but he
      points out that it's normally done by the VFS layer, so ...
      
      [ I suspect that we should possibly do "vfs_write()" instead of
        calling ->write directly.  That also does the whole fsnotify and write
        statistics thing, which may or may not be a good idea. ]
      
      And just to be anal, do this all for the x86-64 32-bit a.out emulation
      code too, even though it's not enabled (and won't currently even
      compile)
