Re: [PATCH] coredump: kill mm->core_done

It is indeed ugly. I think the place to start is with moving all the
coredump code out of exit_mm() into a new subfunction that is just passed
the mm pointer, and doing the same with coredump_finish() as you've done,
but leaving the completion logic inside those functions the same. If all
references to the core_* fields in mm_struct are inside coredump_*()
functions, then that is a good basis for the future cleanups.
