It's completely thread-package-agnostic. I dump all LWPs sharing the
same VM, as a fairly reliable marker (I'd use 2.4 threadgroups, but
LinuxThreads doesn't use them...)
So there is enough information there for lin-lwp to parse the threads,
if we stubbed out its attempts to write, I expect. But since the
current Linux threads model has one thread per process, I can simply
use the corefile.c thread support instead, which I'd rather do.
