SubjectResource limits

Resource limits in Linux, when available, are currently very limited.

Too many process forks and your system may crash.
This can be capped with threads-max, but may lead you into a lock-out.

What is needed is a soft, hard, and a special emergency limit that would
allow you to use the resource for a limited time to circumvent a lock-out.

Would this be difficult to implement?
