fs/binfmt_elf.c: allocate initialized memory in fill_thread_core_info()

commit 1d605416fb7175e1adf094251466caa52093b413 upstream.

KMSAN reported uninitialized data being written to disk when dumping
core.  As a result, several kilobytes of kmalloc memory may be written
to the core file and then read by a non-privileged user.
