0. This is very minimal subset of Solaris libproc just enough for current application.
Please note that the bulk of the functionality is from proc_service interface. This
adds Pgrab__ and some missing stuff. We hide the difference b/w live process and core
file by this interface.

1. pthread_id unique in both NPTL & LinuxThreads. We store this in
OSThread::_pthread_id in JVM code.

2. All threads see the same pid when they call getpid() under NPTL.
Threads receive different pid under LinuxThreads. We used to save the result of
::getpid() call in OSThread::_thread_id. This way uniqueness of OSThread::_thread_id
was lost under NPTL. Now, we store the result of ::gettid() call in
OSThread::_thread_id. Because gettid returns actual pid of thread (lwp id), this is
unique again. We therefore use OSThread::_thread_id as unique identifier.

3. There is a unique LWP id under both thread libraries. libthread_db  maps pthread_id
to its underlying lwp_id under both the thread libraries. thread_info.lwp_id stores
lwp_id of the thread. The lwp id is nothing but the actual pid of clone'd processes. But
unfortunately libthread_db does not work very well for core dumps. So, we get pthread_id
only for processes. For core dumps, we don't use libthread_db at all (like gdb).

4. ptrace operates on this LWP id under both the thread libraries. When we say 'pid' for
ptrace call, we refer to lwp_id of the thread.

5. for core file, we parse ELF files and read data from them. For processes we  use
combination of ptrace and /proc calls.
