Rename referrer to referer in error log

According to the developer doc from mozilla, referrer should be
written with only one R and everywhere in the nginx codebase, we
are using referer with only one R, so to make it consistent, I
propose you to replace referrer with two R in the error log
message with referer with only one R.
I'm also proposing this because of the work I'm doing on vector
regarding a nginx log parser in which we end up having referer
and referrer when we parse logs.
