No comments for the linux stuff (apart from "cool!"), but I agree this
part is appropriate and am glad someone adjusted it.  I ran into it
just yesterday and found it extremely counterintuitive: cf. program in
bin/43409 which has to set both RLIMIT_AS and RLIMIT_DATA to different
values to control malloc.  If you want to commit that as a separate
change, I'm all for it.
