there would be memory leak, it seems that there is no-effect by calling 
apr_allocator_max_free_set.

#define SIZE (10*1024*1024)

apr_pool_t *p;
apr_initialize();
atexit(apr_terminate);

apr_allocator_t *my_allocator_ptr = NULL;
	apr_pool_t *system_pool = NULL;
	if( apr_allocator_create(&my_allocator_ptr) == APR_SUCCESS ){
		printf("created my_allocator_ptr success\n");
		apr_allocator_max_free_set(my_allocator_ptr, SIZE);
		printf("set max free size for my_allocator_ptr to %d\n", SIZE);
	}
	apr_pool_create(&system_pool, NULL);
	apr_pool_create_ex(&p, system_pool, (apr_abortfunc_t)
failed_to_allocate, my_allocator_ptr);
	apr_allocator_owner_set(my_allocator_ptr, p);

	apr_allocator_t *pa = apr_pool_allocator_get(p);
	printf("pa %x my_allocator_ptr %x\n\n", pa, my_allocator_ptr);

	int chunk_size;
	void *ptr = NULL;
	chunk_size = 1024*1024;
	ptr = apr_pcalloc(p, chunk_size);
	for(int i = 1; ptr != NULL; i++){
		ptr = apr_pcalloc(p, chunk_size);
		if( ptr != NULL ){
			printf("pass %3.3d: allocated %d bytes\n", i, 
chunk_size);
		}
		else{
			printf("pass %3.3d: ***failed to allocate %d bytes\n", 
i, chunk_size);
		}
	}
