Subject: [PATCH 1/3] prctl: reduce permissions to change boundaries of data, brk and stack

Currently this operation requires the global CAP_SYS_RESOURCE.
It's required, because a task can exceed limits (RLIMIT_DATA,
RLIMIT_STACK).

So let's allow task to change these parameters if a proper limit is
unlimited.

When we restore a task we need to set up text, data and data heap sizes
from userspace to the values a task had at checkpoint time.

Currently we can not restore these parameters, if a task lives in
a non-root user name space, because it has no capabilities in the
parent namespace.
