Only send SIGXFSZ when exceeding rlimits.
Some users have been having problems with utilities like cp or dd dumping core when they try to copy a file that's too large for the destination filesystem (typically, > 4gb). Apparently, some defunct standards required SIGXFSZ to be sent in such circumstances, but SUS only requires/allows it for when a written file exceeds the process's resource limits. I'd like to limit SIGXFSZs to the bare minimum required by SUS.
