This patch allows gcore to use the ptrace interface rather than procfs:
The main visible effect of that is that gcore can now work on a
per-thread scope, offering a granularity procfs can't reach.
A downside, though, is that the process to be targeted is going to be
stopped with ptrace.
This patch has been contributed back by Sandvine Incorporated.
Comments, reviews and testing are welcome.
