What is the difference between barrier and limit. They both sound like
hard limits. No?

Why uid? Will it be possible to club processes belonging to different
users to same bean counter.

What are the above two fields used for?

I presume UB_RESOURCES value is going to change as different resources
start getting tracked.

I think something like configfs should be used for user interface. It
automatically presents the right interfaces to user land (based on
kernel implementation). And you wouldn't need any changes in glibc etc.
