Good idea! I planned to combine Linux and Windows parts of the failing test to reproduce the inconsistent VmSize issue - but making use of TBB code for a cygwin feature is great - I actually needed RLIMIT_AS for this port too
I looked at fhandler_process.cc last night - adding VmPeak seems just couple lines using Win32 PeakPagefileUsage

Btw., wouldn't it be great to use your Windows limitMem function as
template to implement getrlimit/setrlimit(RLIMIT_AS) inside Cygwin?
