Parts of the unit tests code rely on forked/secondary processes
(expectedly) failing.
A crash in those situations could be missed so add a check on coredumps
presence after unit tests have run.

In some situations (like explicitly call rte_panic), coredump generation
must be disabled to avoid false positives.

Sending as a RFC, as this is a "nice to have" patch I had in store for
some time, but I did not see the actual need so far.

We could attach the coredumps in GHA result, but it would be hardly usable
without attaching all generated binaries...
Opinions?

I think it's a good start.  We may not need to attach the binaries at
all - if we have access to gdb, we can run a script to just run simple
commands like 'thread apply all bt' and maybe some info commands.  That
can all be stuffed into the logs.  Usually a source level backtrace is
enough to work through what happened.

Parts of the unit tests code rely on forked/secondary processes
(expectedly) failing.
A crash in those situations could be missed so add a check on coredumps
presence after unit tests have run.
When unit tests fail, it can also help checking for coredumps as it
could give more insights on what happened.

In some situations (like explicit call to rte_panic), coredump generation
must be disabled to avoid false positives.

Changelog since RFC v1
- removed RFC,
- pushed coredumps into gdb for in-situ analysis,
- gdb presence is used to enable the check. Travis config is left
  untouched for now,

This fixes an issue for me, with running the debug_autotest under a
reproducible build CI environment.

I had this in my backlog and accidentally marked it 'visited' - sorry
about that.
