Subject: [PATCH] proc: report eip and esp for all threads when coredumping

Commit 0a1eb2d474ed ("fs/proc: Stop reporting eip and esp in
/proc/PID/stat") stopped reporting eip/esp and commit fd7d56270b52
("fs/proc: Report eip/esp in /prod/PID/stat for coredumping")
reintroduced the feature to fix a regression with userspace core dump
handlers (such as minicoredumper).

Because PF_DUMPCORE is only set for the primary thread, this didn't fix
the original problem for secondary threads. This commit checks
mm->core_state instead, as already done for /proc/<pid>/status in
task_core_dumping(). As we have a mm_struct available here anyway, this
seems to be a clean solution.
