Right now there is a thread going on on linux-kernel about a project
by SGI which adds "job management" (which is not the same as job
control, mind you) to the linux kernel. Right now, the first goal is
the ability to account for group of "unrelated" processes, but the
second step, according to its authors, is to implement resource
limiting. Maybe this could be interesting for your problem.
