File.extname documentation fix
The documentation says that File.extname returns the portion of the filename after the period, while the actual output includes the period. Update the documentation to reflect this.

There are a few special cases:
- dotfiles (e.g.: ".hidden") have "" for extname and ".hidden" for basename.
- files ending with a dot report "" as extname (done by rb_file_s_extname())
- looking at ruby_enc_find_extname(), the part after ':' is not kept for NTFS paths.
