Do you have a demo for this ?

I think the solution is to just add PAGE_SIZE or whatever to RLIMIT_AS
every time a new page table chunk is allocated. If RLIMIT_AS cannot
be legitimately overridden like this, then add some new one and set a
sane default. If you do it the second way don't forget to notify the
glibc folks :-)
