The purpose of the patch you reverted was addressing that annoyance, so
it is easy to infer that someone indeed was annoyed by that behavior.

So why don't you implement that instead of reverting a patch that
corrects a bug? (After killing a buffer, having a list containing
non-existent buffers is a bug, right? while seeing how the list after
the second item is reordered is an annoyance, so you are proposing to
re-introduce a bug for avoiding an annoyance)
