I believe it's unused on purpose (and it was never used in fact).
If you want maximum possible logging level - use NGX_LOG_EMERG

Probably it should be completely removed to avoid confusion.
Corresponding string representation was already removed in 0.7.54.

It doesn't mean that old versions magically disappear, and I
believe Igor is still periodically tests nginx with gcc 2.95
(which has no -Wextra).

It's unsigned and I see no reason to introduce confusion here by
artificially changing it to signed just to resolve compiler

Additional reasons not to do it include: high bit is already
used on 32bit platforms; it's hardly good idea to use signed
integers with bitwise operators (despite the fact that only
bitwise shift is really undefined).
