Actually, we should avoid increasing this limit if the stack wasn't
increased, right?  Here's what I came up with, I think it doesn't cover
Cygwin/Windows though.

Ah, right:

    $ nm -A /usr/lib/libc.so.6 | grep re_max_failures
    /usr/lib/libc.so.6:0000000000000000 n __evoke_link_warning_re_max_failures
