I have a moderately urgent need for a temporary increase in the amount
of memory available to a process.  Right now, even when running as
root, I can't get anything more than

	ulimit -m 2097151

If it matters, the machine is an i386 running 4.99.30 on the power
management branch from Sept 4.  It has 1G of real memory; for immediate
purposes, performance is not a major concern.
