Description walter 2003-09-21 20:20:15 UTC
	Saving core dumps in backup tapes is something that is seldom
	desired.  Excluding those core dump files from backups would
	cut on backup time and required tape space.

Fix: The following patch gives the choice, via a sysctl flag, to
	automatically create core dumps with the NODUMP flag set, thus
	automatically excluding those files from the next backup.
