Clarify documentation for GetFeatureWeights in TreeEnsembleModelParameters #3339

This PR clarifies the documentation for GetFeatureWeights() in TreeEnsembleModelParameters. Since IHaveFeatureWeights has become internal, the TreeEnsembleModelParameters are now the only place where this method is visible, and it is unclear from the API what this returns. This PR adds documentation to specify that the "weights" returned are the cumulative split gains for all the trees in the ensemble.

Fixes #1850

@rogancarr rogancarr requested review from wschin, TomFinley and Ivanidzo4ka Apr 15, 2019

/// <param name="weights">a <see cref="VBuffer{T}"/> where feature weights would be assigned to.
/// The i-th element in <paramref name="weights"/> stores the weight of the i-th feature.</param>
/// <param name="weights">A <see cref="VBuffer{T}"/> to hold the cumulative split gain value for each feature.
/// The i-th element in <paramref name="weights"/> stores the cumulative split gain of the i-th feature.</param>

Thank you @rogancarr! As discussed "weights" is a bit of an unfortunate word for "cumulative split gains," but it's probably too late to change the API at this point.
