Hi,
We see some fails in gdb.base/coredump-filter.exp when we do remote
gdbserver testing, like what I did for arm/aarch64 linux testing or
run it with board file remote-gdbserver-on-localhost

 $ make check RUNTESTFLAGS='--target_board=remote-gdbserver-on-localhost coredump-filter.exp'

we find that this line in the test doesn't work as expected,

 remote_exec target "sh -c \"echo $filter_flag > /proc/$ipid/coredump_filter\""

although such pattern has been used in gdb testsuite somewhere else,
but the special thing here is that we redirect the output to
/proc/$ipid/coredump_filter on the remote target.  DejaGNU will
redirect the output from the remote target to local, and looks tcl
gets confused by these two redirection.

After trying pass different parameters to remote_exec and hacking
remote_exec/rsh_exec/local_exec, I got no success, I decide
to give up, and try to update /proc/$ipid/coredump_filter by the c
code directly.

This patch adds a c function set_coredump_filter to update
coredump_filter, and GDB calls it.

Now this test passes on boardfile unix, native-gdbserver and
remote-gdbserver-on-localhost.  It also passes my board files for arm
and aarch64 testing.

gdb/testsuite:

2015-04-24  Yao Qi  <yao.qi@linaro.org>

	PR gdb/18208
	* gdb.base/coredump-filter.c (set_coredump_filter): New function.
	* gdb.base/coredump-filter.exp (do_save_core): Call inferior
	function set_coredump_filter, and remove remote_exec call.
	Remove argument ipid.  Callers update.
	(top level): Don't get inferior's PID.
