Thanks for this overview: it proved very useful and allowed me to make some
progress on the unresolved failures below.

These two are due to a bug in the testsuite: setrlimit was called in a way
which caused the hard limits to be reduced below the soft limits, thus all
calls to malloc fail ;-( I'll post a patch shortly.

This one is really absurd: malloc happens to be called with
but instead of returning NULL on a 32-bit machine with way below 4 GB swap,
it returns a valid pointer, but later accesses to that memory area cause
the testcase to crash. Linking with -lmalloc instead of using the version
of malloc in libc allows this test to succeed. I fear we can do nothing
about this if SGI is unable to implement malloc correctly ;-(
