           Summary: LogLevel core:debug needed to see reason for HTTP 400

Patch suggestion to replace APLOG_DEBUG with APLOG_INFO

With changes for
important: Apache HTTP Request Parsing Whitespace Defects (CVE-2016-8743)

was introduced and defaults to strict in 2.4.24

It took me two days on prod environemnt to understand why HTTP Requests got
rejected with HTTP 400 Bad Request.

If I would have had LogLevel core:debug it would have been faster, but this is
the expected LogLevel on Prod Systems.

[Thu Jun 14 09:38:22.660889 2018] [core:debug] [pid x:tid x] protocol.c(839):
[client XXX:38308] AH03448: HTTP Request Line; Excess whitespace (disallowed by
HttpProtocolOptions Strict

I suggest to replace in server/protocol.c around line 820 all APLOG_DEBUG with 
APLOG_WARNING or APLOG_INFO   So that the reason gets obvious in logs, like it
was done with eg. APLOGNO(00561)

    if (deferred_error != rrl_none) {
        if (deferred_error == rrl_badmethod)
            ap_log_rerror(APLOG_MARK, APLOG_DEBUG, 0, r, APLOGNO(03445)
                          "HTTP Request Line; Invalid method token: '%.*s'",
                          field_name_len(r->method), r->method);
        else if (deferred_error == rrl_badmethod09)
        else if (deferred_error == rrl_badprotocol)
            ap_log_rerror(APLOG_MARK, APLOG_DEBUG, 0, r, APLOGNO(02418)
                          "HTTP Request Line; Unrecognized protocol '%.*s' "
                          "(perhaps whitespace was injected?)",
                          field_name_len(r->protocol), r->protocol);
        r->status = HTTP_BAD_REQUEST;
        goto rrl_failed;

Sorry I am not to test compile the attached patch suggestion!
