bug#14714: 24.3.50; `isearch-filter-predicate(s)'

Problem similar to that of bug #14712, regarding obsolescence, but I
think there is a code problem also.

1. `isearch-filter-predicates' should not be an _alias_ for
`isearch-filter-predicate'.  The former cannot just replace the latter.

2. I think one cannot currently use a single predicate as the value of
`isearch-filter-predicates'.  There is one place in the code where that
might work, because of this:

(if (consp isearch-filter-predicates)
  (list isearch-filter-predicates))

(But what if isearch-filter-predicates is nil?  You get `(nil)', which I
think is wrong.)

And in other places it should not work at all.  E.g.:

  (match-beginning 0) (match-end 0))

To make it work throughout, I think you would need to do something like this:

(when (and isearch-filter-predicates
           (atom isearch-filter-predicates))
  (setq isearch-filter-predicates (list isearch-filter-predicates)))

IOW, at the outset, convert an atomic (and non-nil) value to a cons.
