Re: get-live-buffer primitive

    What about such a primitive? We already have live_buffer used in markers
    code, so we can use this internal thing in Fget_live_buffer and avoid
    duplicating some things in elisp...

`get-buffer' should never return a dead buffer.  (Dead buffers
are removed from Vbuffer_alist.)

If `get-buffer' ever does return a dead buffer, that is a bug,
so we should fix it rather than adding some other primitive.
