Over the years, the amount of data we have stored in each process' U

This can be reconstructed at the time of the core dump, so
it doesn't need to be there.
Aren't we 100% ELF these days? Surely aout is no longer relevant?
We are 100% ELF toolchain. We can still (in theory) run AOUT binaries
so long as you use the COMPAT_AOUT kernel option and have AOUT
libraries. But this is offtopic =-)
