The value of RLIM_INFINITY in sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/bits/resource.h 
does not reflect that used by the kernel in N64 mode (0xffffffffffffffff).  
The N32 and O32 syscalls, however, do use 0x7fffffff.  This confuses N64 
NPTL when computing the size of stack to allocate when run with unlimited 
stack, since getrlimit returns a stack limit bigger than the incorrect 
RLIM_INFINITY.  (make 3.81 unlimits the stack, so "make check" run with 
make 3.81 shows up the problem.)

In this patch, I made N64 use the correct value as used by the kernel.  I 
did not change the value used for 64-bit getrlimit for N32 or O32 
(although I made it unsigned to match the rlim_t type); that value is 
simply a glibc convention rather than anything seen by the kernel, so we 
may as well stay compatible with existing O32 and N32 binaries built with 
_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 and linked with the shared libc.  N64 binaries that 
care about RLIM_INFINITY are currently broken because of the 
incompatibility with the kernel, so I don't think changing the value for 
them is a problem.
