On German and Scandinavian keyboards "/" is placed above the "7" key,
so still two key presses are needed to use it (shift and "7").
But M-s is not a bad choice because <META> key can be held down while
repeating pressing "s" for the next search.  Anyhow, "/" might be
bound to `Info-search-next' as well.

BTW, you didn't use the function `Info-search-next' in your key
binding.  But seems this function could be useful to add it
to the menu and describe it in the `Info-mode' docstring.
