Public bug reported:

  bash -c 'ulimit -f 1024; yes | head -n2097152'

On ext4, this test case prints something along the lines of:

  bash: line 1: 11274 Broken pipe             yes
       11275 File size limit exceeded(core dumped) | head -n2097152

On ZFS, this test case incorrectly exits zero with no output,
demonstrating that ZFS does not respect RLIMIT_FSIZE.

I asked a friend to run this on Solaris 5.10 and FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT,
and on those systems this test case correctly generates SIGXFSZ; so it
seems that this is a bug in the Linux port of ZFS.

(This was discovered while tracking down Launchpad test suite failures
under LXD on ZFS.  Launchpad uses RLIMIT_FSIZE in one place to guard
against bugs that cause debdiff to generate arbitrarily large amounts of
output and fill the disk.)
