You were just told the best way to get a meaningful $binary_remote_addr
variable using CloudFlare, with the added bonus of a list of network ranges
to use with set_real_ip_from to only filter out CloudFlare's IP addresses
as sources to be repalced and avoid false positives.

Using the $binary_remote_addr variable takes less space inside your
fixed-sized zone, thus allowing to store more entries.
I suggest you carefully read on the impacts of filling-up the zone memory
and why using as little data per client is highly advised in limit_req_zone
<http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_limit_req_module.html#limit_req_zone>
directive docs as you do not seem to know what you are doing...
