This series is a follow up to the --vmcore-size proposal[1].

The goal is to be able to obtain informations about the dumpfile without
actually generating it. Instead of the --vmcore-size approach, we add
two different options, one allowing to run makedumpfil without writting
the dumpfile, and another to explicitly enable stat displaying.
