BTW, it's a mystery to me why `revert-buffer-function' is not
automatically buffer-local, when every single package that sets it
does so locally; having a global non-nil revert-buffer-function does
not make any sense whatsoever.
But IMHO, neither changing `revert-buffer-function' nor
`dired-subdir-alist' and `dired-directory' is really a bug fix. Yes,
as they are now is error prone, but the uses in the sources are
already correct. That should be a wishlist item for 24.2.
