SubjectRe: [PATCH]: proc: export a processes resource limits via proc/<pid>
Hey again-
Andrew requested that I repost this cleanly, after running the patch
through checkpatch. As requested here it is with the changelog.

Currently, there exists no method for a process to query the resource
limits of another process. They can be inferred via some mechanisms but they
cannot be explicitly determined. Given that this information can be usefull to
know during the debugging of an application, I've written this patch which
exports all of a processes limits via /proc/<pid>/limits.

Tested successfully by myself on x86 on top of 2.6.23-rc2-mm1.

Thanks & Regards
Neil
