Linux (from Linus' tree) does not support core dumps.
I'm only aware of coredump support patch from SGI.

The folks that manage HPUX core dump tools expresed interest
in porting the same tools to parisc-linux...assuming
we would dump core in the same format.

If a spec published for that, would anyone commit to implementing it?

FWIW, I think much of the work is portable to ia64-linux in case
that would help justify an HP project to pick up/fund this work.
