> can someone tell me what the file /proc/kcore is used for?
Not really, but I can tell you what it is. It's a kernel
representation of your system memory, made to look like
a file, as is everything in /proc. Take a look at
Documentation/proc.txt in the kernel source.
I guess you might be able to debug something with it.
