vvar is a global. The variable data in sysconf is per thread
(and not even per mm)

Even if you ignore the semantic problem of thread versus mm, you would
need a new writable page per process and update it any time
the rlimits and other information is updated.

On the other hand my solution is dead simple and already solves
the problem.
