Well, init_uts_ns is exported in vmcoreinfo anyway - makedumpfile
can simply test just as well. And the
"historically" argument doesn't matter because vmcoreinfo is not an ABI.

So makedumpfile needs to be changed to check that new export.

Yes, I'm expecting user tools to be fixed and then exports removed.
