Hi all,

could you please review the patch which enables core dumping and hs_err file generation in case of vmassert, guarantee and the like are hit during gtest tests execution?

before this fix, we always initialize a jvm w/ -XX:+SuppressFatalErrorMessage and -XX:-CreateCoredumpOnCrash, now we do so only if we run assert tests, tests which we expect to hit an vmassert.
