> 
> In current system, when we set core_pattern to a pipe, both pipe program
> and program's output are in host's filesystem.
> But when we set core_pattern to a file, the container will write dump
> into container's filesystem.
> 
> For example, when we set following core_pattern:
>  # echo "|/my_dump_pipe %s %c %p %u %g %t
> e" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
> and trigger a segment fault in a container, my_dump_pipe is searched from
> host's filesystem, and it will write coredump into host's filesystem too.
> 
> In a privileged container, user can destroy host system by following
> command:
>  # # In a container
>  # echo "|/bin/dd of=/boot/vmlinuz" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
>  # make_dump
> 
> Actually, all operation in a container should not change host's
> environment, the container should use core_pattern as its private setting.
> In detail, in core dump action:
> 1: Search pipe program in container's fs namespace.
> 2: Run pipe program in container's fs namespace to write coredump to it.
