Description Vegard Lima 2005-05-06 09:29:07 EDT
Description of problem:

Add a pair of rlimits for allowing non-root tasks to raise nice and rt
priorities was recently added to the linux kernel.
Something like the attached patch should add pam support for
these two limits.

CCing jakub because for the patch to be useful the value of RLIMIT_NICE and
RLIMIT_RTPRIO must be defined in the includes.

The question is - when will they be defined there?
