This patch reimplements former 'process_attach_error' under the new name
'attacherr'. It is also related to the current requirement to call
dwfl_linux_proc_attach() explicitly by the clients since:

libdwfl: Add dwfl_core_file_attach and dwfl_linux_proc_attach.
So I rather do not agree with the former patch which this one fixes.
