Description

When using the deny/allow ip directives of the ngx_http_access_module,
nginx logs the denied accesses with level "error".
If there are many unauthorized clients, it fills the error log with useless messages,
and changing the log level is not acceptable since it hides legitimate errors.

I propose to set the log_level for "access forbidden by rule" messages to info, notice, or warn
instead of error.
