I am not sure I understand the code in that patch, but it looks like
isearch-buffers-search-fun will search all the buffers without a
pause.  Is that right?

I don't think that is the right UI for this feature.  I think the
search should fail when it can't find another occurrence in the
current buffer.  Then if you type C-s again it should go to the next
buffer which has an occurrence, and search there.

The documentation of `isearch-buffers-next-buffer-function' should
clearly state what it means to search multiple buffers.

    +   "The buffer where the search currently stays.

The word "stays" is not used in this way in English.
