ispell-region with M-$ in transient-mark-mode

When a region is active in Transient Mark mode, typing M-$
unexpectedly checks only one word, and quits.  What is more natural
to do in such case is to call `ispell-region' on a selected region.

This change also makes it more convenient to check a region with
a single key `M-$' than with typing `M-x ispell-region'.

Another idea is to call ispell-word on each word with the `w' syntax
in the region, but this may have problems as was pointed out in
the recent discussion.
