Under POSIX, you could "kill -USR2 <emacspid>".
But maybe instead of C-g you could do (blindly) M-x debug RET.  Not if
that would work, but it's worth a try.

Too many possible sources, and none of the "recent" changes jumps to mind.

The prompt is not from revert-buffer but from some low-level code
triggered by imenu code itself triggered by the menu-bar-update-hook.
revert-buffer is only involved indirectly (it probably happens to put
the buffer temporarily in a slightly different state that in turn
triggers the problem).
