Update to GitLab 11.5.1 breaks remote syslog

I have upgrade two GitLab machines, the most recent from 11.5.1-ee to 11.5.5-ee. I am using them on the free version, not paying for ee.

Up to this point, remote syslog has been working fine (I have been using Solar Winds’ Kiwi Syslog Server to collect, filter, and process the logs.

However, this latest update has broken the remote syslog function, and in fact gave me an error where I had to disable remote syslog in gitlab.rb before upgrading.

I understand that remote logging was previously intended to be a ee feature, but I have grown accustomed to it working over the last year+!

Was this an intentional reversion?
