I don't see any.
the table structure is set in t3lib/stddb/tables.sql

Just create a patch which change the field type. Should be based on
master branch and then send to gerrit. For help read this:

I fear this change will be allowed only in master. It would demand users
to apply changes using the install tool within a patch level release.

But you can create an extension to backport the change to versions <6.0

Add this to ext_tables.php of your extension

# Table structure for table 'sys_log'
CREATE TABLE sys_log (
  log_data text,

(should work, but in fact untested)
