Coredump on demand

Bug #1130516 reported by Keyur on 2013-02-20

Bug Description

Gearmand installs a signal handler for SIGSEGV and a bunch of other fatal signals. The signal handler intercepts the signal and writes to stderr some backtrace information.

Usually stderr isn't redirected to a log file and this information could be lost. Also, we prefer to get the core dump so we can investigate the issue better.

A new command-line option is added in the patch that disables the signal handler.
