#312 new enhancement

Coredumps should contain register state

Description

Corefiles generated by taskdump do not contain the register state of the application which crashed or was snapshotted. This is a major shortcoming of our ability to generate coredumps because the coredumps are not that much useful without the register state. The register state is essential when one wants to print / reconstruct a stack trace or see the exact register value which caused the application to crash.

Retarget as there is currently no other architecture which could make use of this functionality due to missing drivers.
