bug#28070: 24.5; doc string of `eval-buffer'

Drew Adams
The doc string should, like Elisp manual node `Eval', mention that this
does NOT always "Execute the current buffer as Lisp code."  It acts on the current buffer restriction, if any.

As the manual says:

  `eval-buffer' operates on the entire accessible portion of buffer

That qualification changes everything.  We don't always need to point
out explicitly that a particular function acts on the accessible portion
of the buffer, but it is important to do so in this case.

In GNU Emacs 24.5.1 (i686-pc-mingw32)
