coredump: fix va_list corruption

A va_list needs to be copied in case it needs to be used twice.

Thanks to Hugh for debugging this issue, leading to various panics.

Tested:

  lpq84:~# echo "|/foobar12345 %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern

'produce_core' is simply : main() { *(int *)0 = 1;}

  lpq84:~# ./produce_core
  Segmentation fault (core dumped)
  lpq84:~# dmesg | tail -1
  [  614.352947] Core dump to |/foobar12345 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 lpq84 (null) pipe failed

Notice the last argument was replaced by a NULL (we were lucky enough to
not crash, but do not try this on your production machine !)

After fix :

  lpq83:~# echo "|/foobar12345 %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h %h" >/proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern
  lpq83:~# ./produce_core
  Segmentation fault
  lpq83:~# dmesg | tail -1
