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.
