[suse-security] workround for kernel bug CVE-2006-2451

I have just seen the message from Marcus about the local root exploit in 
Linux kernel (CVE-2006-2451). He doesn't give a workround, but I imagine
that putting 

*               hard    core            0

in /etc/security/limits.conf would be pretty effective (although it 
doesn't catch people already logged on). Is that correct?
