The NGX_MAIN_CONF specifies context of the directive.

The NGX_DIRECT_CONF flag for NGX_MAIN_CONF directives means that 
the configuration should be access directly (as created with 
create_conf callback), instead of passing an indirect pointer to a 
directive handler (allowing the directive handler to create the 
configuration itself).

As of now, the NGX_DIRECT_CONF flag make sense for NGX_MAIN_CONF 
directives only.
