Documentation error for activate_plugin hook

Reported by: wedi's profile wedi Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.1

The documentation for the activate_plugin hook is erroneous. In the beginning it says that the hook gets fired on plugin deactivation. When you read further it suddenly says activation. This is probably a simple copy&paste error.

My original report for reference:

While investigating, @georgestephanis noticed a bad reference here:

It should refer to wp-admin/includes/plugin.php -- not plugins.php -- no s.

The attached patch fixes both issues.
