Fix LimitRequestLine documentation

There seems to be a lot of confusion on whether or not LimitRequestLine is limited by a compile-time constant or not. The doc definitely says that it is, but a lot of evidence points to otherwise; take revisions 102840 and 819480, for example. I did some manual testing and poking around the code, and it appears that the hard limit no longer applies (at least on 2.2.0 and upwards). The documentation should be updated to reflect that.

In addition to the attached patch, revision 819480 should be backported to 2.2.x.

Thanks, applied doc patch back to 2.2 (r1631516, r1631517, r1631518).

proposed r819480 for 2.2.x as well but closing PR on basis of doc update.
