Description Andrew Cagney 2007-11-07 20:43:47 UTC
The core-file format only fits 80 characters of the argument list; can a
separate .note section containing the full argument list (encoded like
/proc/$$/exe) be added to the kernel, or at least generated by fcore

- check to see what gdb does when there's an unknown note section; if it crashes
that's a bug (file against rh bugzilla initially)

- can, as prototype, have an option to write out /proc/$$/cmdline and then read
it back in.
