Description

Directive "user" will be ignored if the master process doesn't run with super-user privileges. So it is better to add a notification in the doc of directive "user" in https://nginx.org/en/docs/ngx_core_module.html#user.

Thank you for your suggestion. It is believed that the warning emitted by the configuration parsing code when the "user" directive is used yet nginx is not started under root is enough.
