RLIMIT_AS is defined by the opengroup and found in /usr/include/sys/resource.h. 
 For illustrative purposes, I've pasted in the paragraph from the opengroup's 

    This is the maximum size of a process' total available memory, in bytes. If 
this limit is exceeded, the malloc() and mmap() functions shall fail with errno 
set to [ENOMEM]. In addition, the automatic stack growth fails with the effects 
outlined above.

BTW:  I've no idea if the call actually works according to the above 
specification.  For the purposes of this bug report, I'll assume it is and that 
the documentation has a minor omission.
