Description

I installed nginx on my CentOS 7.2 machine from the mainline repo. All services are managed by systemd. When restarting nginx and viewing it's status, there is the following log line: Failed to read PID from file /run/nginx.pid: Invalid argument
However, it doesn't affect nginx.
But there is a really simple way to get rid of this error. The nginx config sets the pidfile to /var/run/nginx.pid while the PIDFile argument in the nginx.service systemd file is set to /run/nginx.pid. Changing this to the same value as in the nginx.conf (/var/run/nginx.pid) will remove the error. I know, it is the same physical directory, but somehow systemd has a problem if it's not the exact same path.

Same as in #884, nginx.service systemd file should also has the same PID path as in nginx.conf. Whenever someone decide to change pid file location in nginx.conf should also take care of nginx.service

I've made the paths consistent in the packaging sources; will be available on the next nginx releases (1.12.1 and 1.13.2).
