BTW, the question is: which Linux distributions have binary kernels
compiled w/increased RLIMIT_MEMLOCK value ?
It's necessary for work with Infiniband/OFED environment. And AFAIK
it's therefore necessary (for increase of this value) to recompile the
kernel: increasing of the corresponding value in
/etc/security/limits.conf can't help.
But (liked by me) OpenSuSE distros, for example, have
RLIMIT_MEMLOCK=32 only (although I didn't check versions after 10.1).
