Werk #10553: Extended Checkmk crash reporting

The crash reporting functionality of Checkmk has been extended. In previous versions of Checkmk it was possible to report only GUI and check plugin related crashes to the Checkmk team.

With this change Checkmk is able to collect crashes from all components of Checkmk. These crashes can be displayed in the central user interface in distributed setups.

You can access the crashes using the view Views > Other > Crash reports. This view shows you a list of all captured crashes. You can open the details of a crash by clicking on the crash ID and send them to the Checkmk team or download the crash package.

These crash reports are stored locally in each site below var/check_mk/crashes.

There is a cleanup mechanism in place which removes all crashes except the last 20 per component.
