I added it to `(elisp) Standard Errors' after `user-error'.  Or should
it go next to `search-failed'?  It says the list is "grouped by concept"
though it seems to be alphabetical.

Sorry, I messed up.  I did an initial implementation using
`define-error' in lisp, and I didn't retest after moving that part to
C.  Here's a corrected patch.

Subject: [PATCH v2] Throw a `search-failed' derived error in Info search

The original fix for Bug#6106 switched from signalling `search-failed'
to `user-error'.  However, this breaks incremental searching over
multiple nodes because the isearch code doesn't expect a `user-error'.

* src/search.c (syms_of_search): New error, `user-search-failed',
with `user-error' and `search-failed' as parents.
* doc/lispref/errors.texi (Standard Errors): Document it.
* etc/NEWS: Announce it.
* lisp/info.el (Info-search): Use it instead of `user-error' so that
isearch will handle failed searches correctly.
