    Put gdb.base/bt-on-fatal-signal.exp GDB cores in output dir
    I noticed that gdb.base/bt-on-fatal-signal.exp was contributing four
    core files to the count of unexpected core files:
     $ make check TESTS="gdb.base/bt-on-fatal-signal.exp"
                     === gdb Summary ===
     # of unexpected core files      4
     # of expected passes            21
    These are GDB core dumps.  They are expected, however, because the
    whole point of the testcase is to crash GDB with a signal.
    Make GDB change its current directory to the output dir just before
    crashing, so that the core files end up there.  The result is now:
                     === gdb Summary ===
     # of expected passes            25
     $ find . -name "core.*"
    (Note the test is skipped at the top if on a remote host.)
