bug#31636: 27.0.50; lockfile syntax searchable from info manual

From: Brady Trainor
Subject: bug#31636: 27.0.50; lockfile syntax searchable from info manual
Date: Tue, 29 May 2018 00:33:10 -0700

I had hoped to find about files such as `/tmp/.#fileA` by searching in
the info manual for ".#". But I did not find such a string there, nor
via `apropos-documentation`.

If a user encounters such a file in a directory, I think it would lead
to good discoverability if a manual or docstring had some mention of the
string ".#", so that one might search for it.

I'm sending this report without having spent a lot of time on it now,
not sure if this ".#" convention comes from outside of emacs.

Thank you!
