"ulimit -a" not only prints all current settings but shows the switches to
display/set each setting and the units it is using.

So "ulimit -l unlimited" should set max locked mem to unlimited (both soft
and hard [if root]).

"ulimit -Sl unlimited" sets soft limit only.

"man bash" and search for "ulimit" for more details.
