    SubjectDoS with POSIX file locks?
    Unlike open files there doesn't seem to be any limit on the number of
    locks being held either globally or by a single process.

    Hence an unprivileged process can consume large amounts of unswappable
    kernel memory even if there are strict limits on other resources.

    Is there a reason why this shouldn't be a problem?
