coredump: fix crash when umh is disabled
Commit 64e90a8acb859 ("Introduce STATIC_USERMODEHELPER to mediate call_usermodehelper()") added the optiont to disable all call_usermodehelper() calls by setting STATIC_USERMODEHELPER_PATH to an empty string. When this is done, and crashdump is triggered, it will crash on null pointer dereference, since we make assumptions over what call_usermodehelper_exec() did. This has been reported by Sergey when one triggers a a coredump with the following configuration: ``` CONFIG_STATIC_USERMODEHELPER=y CONFIG_STATIC_USERMODEHELPER_PATH="" kernel.core_pattern = |/usr/lib/systemd/systemd-coredump %P %u %g %s %t %c %h %e ``` The way disabling the umh was designed was that call_usermodehelper_exec() would just return early, without an error. But coredump assumes certain variables are set up for us when this happens, and calls ile_start_write(cprm.file) with a NULL file.
