ulimit -v workaround for the do_brk() bug does not work

Maybe this has been discussed earlier today on this list, but I've just
joined it.

I was told that doing a 'limit -v 2097151' would work around the do_brk()
bug. Unfortunately it does not :-(

The sample exploit posted on bugtraq manages to reboot my SuSE 8.2 machine
(standard kernel) despite the ulimit.
