Actually, I don't think this is the way to go, I'm sorry to not have 
noticed that earlier. Normally, see, eg, locale/cons/12438.cc, we just 
call __gnu_test::set_memory_limits, I blindly assumed you followed the 
existing practice.

I can try to run the patch + testcases with the -D_GLIBCXX_RES_LIMITS 
removed, but please, in general, be careful to allow for a range of 
different system, we can't be too strict, generically.
