resource: add helpers for fetching rlimits
Jiri Slaby [Thu, 19 Nov 2009 16:16:37 +0000 (17:16 +0100)]
We want to be sure that compiler fetches the limit variable only
once, so add helpers for fetching current and maximal resource
limits which do that.

Add them to sched.h (instead of resource.h) due to circular dependency
 sched.h->resource.h->task_struct
Alternative would be to create a separate res_access.h or similar.
