RILIMT_AS is the only way to limit the amount of memory a process can
allocate in Linux with Torque (unless you have control group support
enabled in both your kernel and in Torque).
Current implementations of malloc() in glibc use mmap() for any
allocation above a trivial value and the kernel only looks at
RLIMIT_AS for mmap().
