Just note that this test is not in syscalls runtest file but in the
crashme runtest file, which contains highly questionable stuff.

I guess that the original test does not really take things like
overcommit and OMM into an account, so shifting the test goals by
setting the RLIMIT_NPROC so that we effectively check that the
limits are enforced is probably reasonable way how to fix the test.
Either we do that or we remove fork12.c.
