mlock() broken?


mlock() works only for superuser. Ordinary users will
get EPERM, regardless of rlimits, buffer alignment, size, ..
According to manpage, mlock() may never end up with
EPERM. No rlimit checking is performed for superuser.

Is this known bug, intended behaviour or what? System is
OpenBSD 2.5 on Intel x86.
