Subject: [PATCH 1/2] res_counter : check limit change

Add an interface to set limit. This is necessary to memory resource controller
because it shrinks usage at set limit.

(*) Other controller may not need this interface to shrink usage because
    shrinking is not necessary or impossible in it.

Changelog:
  - fixed white space bug.
