> We can easily switch to text mode from the image mode by the

> for the image mode - C-c C-x which works like C-c C-c, but
> executes switch to the hexl-mode. Like switching to text mode,
> switching to hex mode supports switching back to the image-mode.
> The patch contains following changes:
> * lisp/image-mode.el: adapted comments at the top of file;
> * lisp/image-mode.el: added new menu item to the Image menu:
> 'Show as hex';
> * lisp/image-mode.el: added description of the new keybinding
> to the image-mode help;
> * lisp/image-mode.el: all help messages in minibuffer adapted
> to new keybinding;
> * lisp/image-mode.el: image-toggle-hex-display function added
> which checks current mode and switch into text or image mode
> depends on it;
> * lisp/image-mode.el: add image-mode-to-text helper for 
> image-toggle-as-hex and image-toggle-as-text functions. It
> is built on top of image-toggle-as-text function and used
> for auto-mode-alist related preparation before switching
> into text or hexl mode.
> Patch tested on top of emacs-25 branch on fedora 23 with all
> Linux related configured options.

Thanks.  This generally looks good.  A few comments:

  . This should go to master, not emacs-25, as it's a new feature.
  . Please provide a ChangeLog-style commit log message for the
    changes (some details are in CONTRIBUTE).
  . Please provide an update for the user manual, which describes
    "C-c C-c", to describe "C-x C-x" as well.

Some specific comments below.

Why does this sentence talk about text, when the mode is about hex
display?  Copy/paste mistake?

It is best to avoid referring to another command in a doc string, if
you can avoid that.  In this case, the reference doesn't add any
useful information, so I think it should be deleted.

Last, but not least, I think this contribution is too large to accept
without legal paperwork.  I don't see your copyright assignment on
file; would you like me to send you the form so you could start the
paperwork rolling?
