Subject[2.6.20.17 review 40/58] do not limit locked memory when RLIMIT_MEMLOCK is RLIM_INFINITY
Fix a bug in mm/mlock.c on 32-bit architectures that prevents a user from
locking more than 4GB of shared memory, or allocating more than 4GB of
shared memory in hugepages, when rlim[RLIMIT_MEMLOCK] is set to
RLIM_INFINITY.
