[LTP] ulimit01 on test7

I noticed at ulimit01 fails on 2.4.0-test7 as follows:

$ ./ulimit01 
ulimit01    1  PASS  :  ulimit(1, -1) returned 4194303
ulimit01    2  FAIL  :  ulimit(2, -1) returned 0
ulimit01    3  PASS  :  ulimit(2, 4194303) returned 0
ulimit01    4  PASS  :  ulimit(2, 4194302) returned 0
$ uname -a
Linux barn 2.4.0-test7 #2 Thu Aug 24 09:12:50 PDT 2000 i586 unknown

This passes on 2.2.x.  However, there are a couple issues: 1) this is
not necessarily a kernel test.  ulimit() is a libc test.  2) the man
page is clear in stating that ulimit() is obsolete.  So, should we be
alarmed that it is failing -- there might be codes out there that use
it.  Should we remove this test?  Thoughts?
