Please file a bug against the relevant package and open a discussion
with the maintainer. If this causes problem in a mixed Linux
environment, it's worth reporting it. Beside, I couldn't find any
documentation of the reason for that patch being only in Debian nor why
it was included in the first place (I checked the Debian changelog, and
the package itself, all I saw was "Allow explicit limits for root.
Also, remove limits on su.").
