bug#23347: 25.0.92; Follow mode scrolling broken -- scrolls only one pag

Hi!

I just tested this and I can confirm that it works, as far as I can tell!


I tested the "old" scroll functions `follow-scroll-up' and `-down' and now they scroll the entire display, hence the bug I initially reported is fixed.

I tested with positive and negative numerical arguments and the corresponding number of lines were scrolled, in the correct direction.

I tested the new "window" scroll functions and they work as well -- with and without arguments.


I noticed some area where this could be improved upon, however they are minor and I think we should address them after the emacs-25 release:

+ The new "window" scroll functions scroll almost a window. The effect is that normally the point is moved from one window to the next. However, if the cursor is at the bottom of a window the user do a `follow-scroll-up-window', the point ens up at the top of the same window, which could be a bit confusing. (In other words, skip the `next-screen-context-lines' part. When using Follow mode, there is enough context anyway.)

+ Now both `follow-scroll-up' and `follow-scroll-up-window' scroll ARG lines when presented with an argument. It would be nice if either one of them could scroll ARG windows instead. (Where "one window" could be seen as the number of lines of the current window.) I think it would make most sense to apply this change to `follow-scroll-up'.

+ Documentation:

In `follow-scroll-up-window' -- we should mention the difference is compared to `scroll-up' (that the point isn't moved, if it can be displayed in another window).

In `follow-scroll-up' -- Make it clear what the difference between this and `follow-scroll-up-window' is (that it scroll the entire display).


Finally -- Many, many thanks for all the work you have put into this!

I've just used `follow-scroll-up-window' and
`follow-scroll-down-window'.  At least, for now.

OK.  I had one or two minor problems with follow-scroll-up/down with a
non-nil ARG.  In the end, I just extracted functionality from
follow-scroll-up/down-window into separate functions, and called those
from all four scrolling functions.

Anyway, here is the patch I've come up with.  Could you review it and
test it, please.  Thanks!
