combining RLIMIT_AS and RLIMIT_DATA sounds confusing.

I looked at what linux does here: RLIMIT_DATA only affects brk(),
whereas RLIMIT_AS affects all mappings.  that's what we were trying
to do too, but I think we just put the check in the wrong place...
if we move it to uvm_map() instead of uvm_mmap(), that will catch
brk() and stack usage too.  let me try that and see what breaks.
