[lucid/fsl-imx51] [PATCH 3/3] resource: add helpers for fetching rlimits

From: Jiri Slaby <jslaby at suse.cz>

We want to be sure that compiler fetches the limit variable only
once, so add helpers for fetching current and maximal resource
limits which do that.

Add them to sched.h (instead of resource.h) due to circular dependency
Alternative would be to create a separate res_access.h or similar.
