Details

Description:
Since systemd 232 there is no invocation of pam_limits.so anymore, which renders all settings in /etc/security/limits.conf (/etc/security/limits.d/*) useless.
This needs to be added to /etc/pam.d/systemd-user, as mentioned in the upstream NEWS.
A simple adding of pam_limits.so fixes this issue (patch attached).

Additional info:

* systemd NEWS: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/blob/master/NEWS#L303
* bug related to realtime in user services: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/4851
* systemd >= 232


Steps to reproduce:
Start user service with settings for realtime scheduling.
The PAM settings will not be honored, the user (even if in correct group will not be able to set realtime scheduler for the service).
This task depends upon
