You can enable them for all applications by creating a "core-dumps"
directory to the external MMC.

Unfortunately the cards are mounted with "user" user, so processes
like "dsnmasq" which are run as user "nobody" cannot dump core to
the MMC unless you re-mount it so that everybody can write there
(and even then you don't always get core dumps from segfaulted
processes for some reason).

If you get core dumps, please attach them to bugzilla. I think it has
some fairly low limit on attachment sizes though.
