bug#8814: 23.3.50; dir-locals configuration does not work for subdirecto

From: Alex Harsanyi
Subject: bug#8814: 23.3.50; dir-locals configuration does not work for subdirectories
Date: Tue, 7 Jun 2011 21:05:03 +0800

I'm trying to use the dir-locals mechanism to specify different mode
settings for files in different directories.  For example, my project
has files with the "txt" extension in a "doc" directory which are RST
documents and should be opened in "rst-mode" and configuration files in
a cfg directory also with a "txt" extension which should be opened in

For example:

$ mkdir -p test/{doc,cfg}
$ cd test
$ cat > .dir-locals.el
     (text-mode (mode . rst)))
     (text-mode (mode . conf))))
$ cat > cfg/config.txt
$ cat > doc/document.txt
Some design document
This is in *RST* mode

Unfortunately, in `hack-dir-local-variables', the "doc" and "cfg"
directories are not recognized relative to the .dir-locals.el file but
relative to the opened file.  This means that with this dir-locals file,
both the "config.txt" and "document.txt" are opened in text mode.

The following patch fixes the problem:
