Remove error logging in sanitize_post

Reported by: legalweb's profile legalweb Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 5.9.1
Component: Posts, Post Types Keywords:

There is a error_log call in the method sanitize_post in post.php which is not needed in generall. it only spams the debug.log file

foreach ( array_keys( get_object_vars( $post ) ) as $field ) {
                        error_log("sanitize_post_field(field: ".$field.", postId:".$post->ID.")");
                        $post->$field = sanitize_post_field( $field, $post->$field, $post->ID, $context );

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac!

Could it be that this file was manually edited on your site?

This function does not include any error_log() call in WordPress.

i've checked it and have this line on 2 different installations on the same hoster. but if i check the lastet wordpress zip package, it's not present.
seems that the hoster added this. sorry for this false positive.
