bug#9820: 24.0.90; Behaviour of add-file-local-variable

That's exactly what these commands purposely do,
and users see as a result, so there is no need
to reiterate the obvious fact in the message.

> To update actual variable values, revisit the file"

If it's more clear, we could change:

  "Revisit file to make this change take effect"

to

  "Revisit file to update actual variable values"

After moving this message to modify-file-local-variable,
checking for new value against the old value really makes less sense
because it's unclear what to do for the `delete' operations,
so I removed this check below.

Please try a new patch:
