GNUmach (or GNUhurd maybe ?) probably need to implement and provide the POSIX header <sys/resources.h> to solve this issue.

rlimits don't get propagated to children.

$ ulimit -s
$ ulimit -s 1024
$ ulimit -s
$ bash
$ ulimit -s

Notably, this prevents libpthread from choosing the proper stack size
from ulimit -s
