What is the procedure for checking resource limits when the process is
started as root with a fork and then uses setuid to change user?
Should exec(3) check if the resource limit (like maxproc) has already been
reached? Or maybe a new exec(3) functions just for this?
Or what is the best way to handle this?
I see that sys/kern/kern_fork.c has checks for this, but kern_exec.c does
