libproc could understand Linux core files
There are often times where mdb facilities, such as the mdb v8 plugin, would be useful to apply to other systems. In these cases, we add rudimentary support to libproc for core files generated on Linux, which happens to primarily consist of two obsolete elf note types that we used to use, but no longer use for our own core files. This allows pstack and mdb to get at the basics of the core dump, such as basic process status and registers, but certainly not everything.
