Print stack trace of a core file without needing to enter gdb interactively

gdb --batch --quiet -ex "thread apply all bt full" -ex "quit" ${exe} ${corefile}
This does almost the same thing as the original, but it runs the full backtrace for _all_ the threads, which is pretty important when reporting a crash for a multithreaded software, since more often than not, the signal handler is executed in a different thread than the crash happened.
