Use normal double quotes in TeX / LaTeX comments

* lisp/textmodes/tex-mode.el (tex-insert-quote): When in a comment,
  default to inserting a normal double quote (") instead of TeX-style
  open (``) or close ('') quote marks.

* etc/NEWS (TeX mode): Note the change.

* test/lisp/electric-tests.el (autowrapping-7): Adjust accordingly.
