How do I produce core files for MySQL using Oracle / RH Linux versions 5,6,7?

Red Hat Advanced Server
On Linux it is not enough to configure MySQL to produce a core file using the --core-file option. The reason is that setuid processes (processes originally started by another user) are by default not allowed to generate core files. This is done as a security precaution. There is a Oracle Linux ( inc RHEL and clones ) specific kernel parameter that needs to be set.
