 The openssl issue seems to be BE only, I don't know about the core
 dump one (which is what this PR is about).
 Why would the processor status (register 25 in gdb speak) not be available
 in a core? Can I still trust the other registers, given that $PC doesn't
 seem to make any sense? Note that it is not SIGILLing on one of the
 armv8 instructions it tests, but on the single armv7 one that should not
 generate a trap on this CPU (only if run under xen or something).
