Thanks a lot... I made a separate patch for the lejp-conf working 
without TLS configured part and pushed both that and the QNX support on

Yes... these are only coming though if you don't configure the vhost log 
file path with, eg

      "access-log": "/var/log/lwsws/test-access-log"

otherwise they just go there without going through the lwsl_... logging. 
  You're right though it's not really any error, I added a patch on 
master to reduce the logging to NOTICE as you suggested.

If the CGI got started, the 200 response was sent, so it is correct as 
far as it goes.

If the CGI issues any stderr, then it gets logged with NOTICE.  But if 
it just timed out, probably no stderr.

Although CGI timeout is something you can set separately, it's actually 
done by the generic wsi timeout support... INFO is appropriate for that 

It needs to do something specific about cgi timeout I think... I also 
added a patch on master that has it log timeout on CGI wsi with NOTICE 
and some aux information like method and rhs part of the URI.

Thanks, I appreciate the contribution.
