Crash Dump Analysis Patterns (Part 4, Linux)

This is a Linux variant of Lateral Damage pattern previously described for Windows platforms. It also covers memory dumps where someĀ usual commands may not work and we have to find a workaround to simulate their output, for example, by using other commands:

(gdb) info threads
Cannot find new threads: generic error

(gdb) thread apply all bt
Cannot find new threads: generic error

(gdb) thread 2
[Switching to thread 2 (LWP 12567)]
#0 0x000000000042ff51 in nanosleep ()

(gdb) thread 3
[Switching to thread 3 (LWP 12566)]
#0 0x000000000041482e in _int_malloc ()
