Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to sudo in Ubuntu.

  `sudo --login --user USERNAME` throws `setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE):
  Operation not permitted` error when run inside a container.

Status in sudo source package in Groovy:

Bug description:
  Logging in as a sudo user in a Ubuntu Focal Linux container displays a

    sudo: setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE): Operation not permitted

  The warning is entirely unnecessary - the container is trying to adjust
  RLIMIT_CORE, but this isn't allowed inside a container anyway.

  While this is "just" a warning, logging into a container as sudo is a
  very common practice, so this warning risks creating confusion for LTS

  [Test Case]
  $ lxc launch ubuntu:20.04/amd64 sudo-sru-lp1857036-test
  $ lxc shell sudo-sru-lp1857036-test

  # sudo --login --user ubuntu
  sudo: setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE): Operation not permitted
  To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
  See "man sudo_root" for details.
  $ logout

  Install the PPA
  # apt-add-repository -yus ppa:bryce/sudo-sru-lp1857036-setrlimit-in-lxc
  # apt-get install sudo

  # sudo --login --user ubuntu

  [Regression Potential]
  As this only affects printing of a couple warnings, the only behavioral
  change is in stderr output.

  This changes a couple warnings into equivalent debug printfs, which
  brings the sudo behavior in-line with the behavior in groovy, bionic,
  etc. and should cause no troubles.

  This patch originates from upstream, and is already in groovy's sudo
  package (which thus can be seen not to exhibit the issue).

  The upstream patch includes some new debug prints which should be
  harmless but are unnecessary to the fix so they've been removed.

  [Original Report]
  When using `sudo --login --user USERNAME` with Ubuntu Focal currently, it 
will correctly operate but it will also throw the following error before 
continuing with the logon process (which completes successfully except for the 
stated error):

  sudo: setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE): Operation not permitted

  A full run of this was tested in a Focal LXD container after dropping
  to a root shell to reproduce (arstotzka is the host system, focal-test
  is the test container):

  teward@arstotzka:~$ lxc shell focal-test
  root@focal-test:~# sudo --login --user ubuntu
  sudo: setrlimit(RLIMIT_CORE): Operation not permitted
  To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
  See "man sudo_root" for details.
