Subject: [PATCH] Use ELF_CORE_EFLAGS for kcore ELF header flags.
Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2008 14:34:23 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080212133423.GD16389@edgar.se.axis.com> (raw)

ELF_CORE_EFLAGS is already used by the binfmt_elf coredumper to set correct 
arch specific ELF header flags on coredumps. Use it for kcore aswell.
This corrects kcore files for the CRIS arch and I beleive it corrects 
ordinary coredumps for the H8/300.
