Checkpointing and restarting system

'core-restart' is a process checkpointing and restarting system. It does not require the executables to be linked with a library, so processes can be checkpointed without being changed. Also, the restarted process and the restoration code are in independent address spaces which simplifies the mechanism of restoring the stack and register state of the checkpointed process. The system runs only on user-level code and requires no modifications to the kernel.
