bug#15159: 24.3.50; doc of `file-relative-name'

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#15159: 24.3.50; doc of `file-relative-name'
Date: Wed, 21 Aug 2013 20:42:19 -0700 (PDT)

The doc says nothing about whether arg FILENAME needs to be absolute or
relative, and in fact it can be either.  It is clear enough what the
function does if it is absolute, but the doc should say explicitly what
it does for a relative FILENAME, namely, it expands the FILENAME in the
`default-directory' of the current buffer.

(The doc says that DIRECTORY defaults to the `default-directory' of the
current buffer, but this is about FILENAME, not DIRECTORY.)

Both the doc string and (elisp) `Relative File Names' need to be fixed.
