layer.editBuffer().addFeature( feature )

Anyway if someone wants to add a new feature permanently, it should be
rather done this way:
layer.dataProvider().addFeatures( [feature] )
It's more efficient and it does not mess with the editing state of the
layer (imagine you are editing a layer and a plugin action will commit
all your changes without asking!).
