[PATCH 3/3] Write dump into container's filesystem for pipe_type core_pattern

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.

This patch fixed above problem by running pipe program with container's
fs_root.

Test:
 1: do dump in host
    should have same action with current code.
    [HOST] # ulimit -c 1024000
    [HOST] # rm -f /tmp/*dump*
    [HOST] # echo "|/dump_pipe %s %c %p %u %g %t e" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
    [HOST] # ./make_dump
    [HOST] Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    [HOST] # ls -l /tmp/*dump*  # Should see host_dump_*.
    [HOST] -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 331776 Apr 15 18:01 /tmp/host_dump_11_1048576000_2356_0_0_1460714470
 2: do dump after change core_pattern in container
    the container should write dump into its filesystem.
    [HOST] # rm -f /tmp/*dump*
    [HOST] # echo "|/dump_pipe %s %c %p %u %g %t e" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
    [HOST] # lxc-start -n vm_dumptest

    [GUEST]# ulimit -c 1024000
    [GUEST]# rm -f /tmp/*dump*
    [GUEST]# echo "|/dump_pipe %s %c %p %u %g %t e" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
    [GUEST]# ./make_dump
    [GUEST]Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    [GUEST]# ls -l /tmp/*dump*  # Should see guest_dump_*
    [GUEST]-rw-r--r--    1 root     root       331776 Apr 15 10:01 /tmp/guest_dump_11_524288000_12_0_0_1460714482
 3: do dump without change core_pattern in container
    the container should write dump into host's filesystem to keep compatibility.
    [HOST] # rm -f /tmp/*dump*
    [HOST] # echo "|/dump_pipe %s %c %p %u %g %t e" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
    [HOST] # lxc-start -n vm_dumptest
    [GUEST]Please press Enter to activate this console.
    [GUEST]# ulimit -c 1024000
    [GUEST]# rm -f /tmp/*dump*
    [GUEST]# ./make_dump
    [GUEST]Segmentation fault (core dumped)
    [GUEST]# ls -l /tmp/*dump*  # Should not see dump file
    [GUEST]ls: /tmp/*dump*: No such file or directory
    [HOST] # ls -l /tmp/*dump*  # Should see dump file
    [HOST] -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 331776 Apr 15 18:01 /tmp/host_dump_11_524288000_12_0_0_1460714516
