revised patch for objdump'ing core files

Some time back, I submitted a patch that allowed objdump to recognize
and dump core files.  However that patch had a couple of problems with
properly handling ambiguously recognized files, particularly
bfd_object files.

I believe this patch fixes that.  This patch is modeled after how
display_bfd works in size.c, by moving the actual code to process the
bfd out of display_bfd and into a separate function called by
display_bfd, once a match is found.

Could someone please review this and check it in if it looks OK now?
Thanks!

	* objdump.c (display_bfd): Break into two functions.  The
	actual dumping code moves to dump_bfd.  If bfd is not
	unambiguously recognized as a bfd_object, attempt to dump
	it as a bfd_core.
	(dump_bfd): New function.
