bug#29598: 26.0; doc of `load-history'

Drew Adams
Shouldn't the doc say something about the order of the elements of the
alist?  It's a history, but neither the Elisp manual nor the doc string
mentions whether the beginning or the end of the list is the oldest part
of the history of loads.

Since it's an alist, and every element should be there only once, why
does the order matter?
