Codex For NGINX References blogs.dir for multisite

https://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx#Global_restrictions_file references blogs.dir for wpmu and I don't think that's used anymore. The nginx rules should be updated?

The blogs.dir setup is still supported by WordPress, it's just not the default setting anymore. For older blogs that still have it enabled, then it's still necessary information.

Basically, if you setup an old version of WP and then upgraded over the years, your code still uses blogs.dir. My own multisite instance does, in fact. :)

At the very least, the caveat should be to not include them and have a new section for older wordpress installs. People who install WPMU today won't be able to follow those directions. IMHO ;-)
