Subject: gpgv: Improve documentation for keyring choices

* doc/gpgv.texi: Improve documentation for keyring choices

--

From the existing documentation, it's not clear whether the default
keyring will always be mixed into the set of keyrings, or whether it
will be skipped if a --keyring is present.  The updated text here
attempts to describe the keyring selection logic more completely.

(cherry picked from commit a7b2a87f940dba078867c44f1f50d46211d51719)

 That does also mean that it does not check for expired or revoked

-By default a keyring named @file{trustedkeys.kbx} is used; if that

+If no @code{--keyring} option is given, @code{gpgv} looks for a
+``default'' keyring named @file{trustedkeys.kbx} (preferred) or
+@file{trustedkeys.gpg} in the home directory of GnuPG, either the
+default home directory or the one set by the @code{--homedir} option
+or the @code{GNUPGHOME} environment variable.  If any @code{--keyring}
+option is used, @code{gpgv} will not look for the default keyring. The
+@code{--keyring} option may be used multiple times and all specified
+keyrings will be used together.
