# ulimit.hack: Create an intermediate program for use in
# between kernel initialization and init startup.
# This is needed on a 3b system if the standard CDLIMIT is
# so small that the dumped Emacs file cannot be written.
# This program causes everyone to get a bigger CDLIMIT value
# so that the dumped Emacs can be written out.
# Users of V.3.1 and later should not use this; see etc/MACHINES
# and reconfig your kernel's CDLIMIT parameter instead.
# Caveat: Heaven help you if you screw this up. This puts
# a new program in as /etc/init, which then execs the real init.

ulimit(2, 262144L); /* "2" is the "set" command. */
/* 262,144 allows for 128Mb files to be written. */
/* If that value isn't suitable, roll your own. */
execv("/etc/real.init", argv);
# Compile it and put it in place of the usual init program.

# Upon system reboot, all processes will inherit the new large ulimit.
