[New-bugs-announce] [issue22671] Typo in class io.BufferedIOBase docs

New submission from gigaplastik:

The online documentation for class io.BufferedIOBase states the following:

"Besides, the read() method does not have a default implementation that defers to readinto()."

According to the documentation for class io.RawIOBase (which the statement compares with) read() method actually defers to readall(), NOT readinto() as misleadingly stated.
The same typo is present in help('io.BufferedIOBase') output and, very likely, in all 3.X line docs for this class.
