Not true, it makes sense outside of Isearch as well (toggles the
default).

IOW, use \\<isearch-mode-map>`\\[isearch-toggle-lax-whitespace]' in the
doc strings of variables `isearch-lax-whitespace' and
`isearch-regexp-lax-whitespace', and function `isearch-forward-regexp'.

The doc string says you can toggle using command
`isearch-togggle-lax-whitespace'.  That's pretty useless, as it makes
sense only during Isearch.  It should say that you can use key `M-s SPC'
to do this.  IOW, there is a missing \\[...] envelope.

Not only that, but if you actually try `M-x
isearch-toggle-lax-whitespace' you may be in for a bit of a surprise.

The same doc-string problem holds for other Isearch doc strings that
mention this command - they should all use \\[...] and say that you can
use this _during Isearch_ to toggle the variable value.
