That's really outside the scope of libvirt.  On Fedora/RHEL there is
the abrt program, which captures core dumps from any process in the
entire OS and has configurable actions for where to save them. IIUC
Ubuntu has some general purpose core dump handler too but I don't know
much about it myself. They all work by hooking into the kernel's
core_pattern  sysctl knob to redirect core dumps to their own binary
instead of using $CWD
