Each build, meson would issue a warning reporting that the
"warning_level" setting should be used in place of adding -Wextra
directly to our build commands. Testing with meson 0.61 shows that the
only difference for gcc and clang builds between warning levels 1 and
2 is the addition of -Wextra, so we can remove the warning by deleting
our explicit set of Wextra and changing the build defaults to
warning_level 2.

Fixes: 524a0d5d66b9 ("build: enable extra warnings with meson")

Signed-off-by: Bruce Richardson <bruce.richardson@intel.com>
V2: fixed CI apply issues due to V1 being based on top of patch
    'build: fix warnings when running external commands'

NOTE1: Not putting CC stable for this patch, I don't believe it's worth
the risk of backporting.

NOTE2: For reference, when building a test "hello world" project with
different warning levels, the following flags are used by meson:

warning_level=0: <none>
warning_level=1: -Wall -Winvalid-pch
warning_level=2: -Wall -Winvalid-pch -Wextra
warning_level=3: -Wall -Winvalid-pch -Wextra -Wpedantic
