[OpenAFS] forcing coredumpsize in bosserver

I submitted a patch which would use the fact that bosserver runs as
root to override resource limits and always drop a core. The issue
it's intended to address is that often people will start bosserver
from contaminated environments (where coredumpsize is limited) and
then have a crash, and can provide no data...

Is anyone deliberately turning off cores with limit? Would a command
line switch to bosserver be acceptable to you in lieu of it? (None is
provided in this patch yet but it could be if it mattered)
