As an lldb developer, I would like an automated test for LLDB operation when
run against an ELF core file, so that I know when regressions are introduced.

* Can run "ulimit -c unlimited" and then build&run
functionalities/inferior-asserting/a.out to generate a core file.
* Can base the tests on existing code in TestInferiorAssert.py that walks the
call stack to inspect frames.

Acceptance Criteria:
* Generate a core file as part of the test rather than checking in a file.
** Delete the generated core file independent of success or failure of the
* Incorporate tests analogous to TestRegisters.py and TestInferiorAssert.py.
* Provide an xfail for AVX register tests.
* Provide an xfail for bugzilla 17227 (incorrect disassembly)

We already have windows minidump- and linux elf core file-tests checked in. I
would encourage other architectures to check-in small core files as well, but
in general, I'd call this fixed.
