[PATCH] coredump: Fix the setting of PF_DUMPCORE

From: Silesh C V
Date: Fri Jul 11 2014 - 06:01:23 EST

commit 079148b91 (coredump: factor out the setting of PF_DUMPCORE)
cleaned up the setting of PF_DUMPCORE by removing it from all the
linux_binfmt->core_dump() and moving it to zap_threads().But this
ended up clearing all the previously set flags. This causes issues
during core generation when tsk->flags is checked again
(eg. for PF_USED_MATH to dump floating point registers). Fix this.
