Core dump file name control

This patch provides for a way to securely move where core files show up and to set the name pattern for core files to include the UID, Program, Hostname, and/or PID of the process that caused the core dump. This is very handy for diskless clusters where all of the core dumps go to the same disk and for production servers where core dumps want to be segregated from the main production disks. This also makes it easier to clean up core files since you would no longer need hunt through the whole filesystem looking for files named "core".

XFS Recovery Boot Tool

Under XFS, there currently is no way to repair a damaged filesystem that is mounted, which makes it rather hard to recover the root (/) partition without some form of recovery disk.  This script, plus some specific configuration items will provide for automatic and manual repair services for XFS file systems.
