bug#12230: 24.2; revert-buffer in an Info buffer should refresh Info-ind

From: Eli Zaretskii
Subject: bug#12230: 24.2; revert-buffer in an Info buffer should refresh Info-index-nodes

This problem cannot easily happen in "emacs -Q", so no reproducible
recipe, sorry.

However, the problem is quite clear: if you "M-x revert-buffer" in an
Info buffer, and the new Info file changed the names of its Index
nodes, then the 'i' command will most probably fail the next time you
invoke it in that Info buffer.

A case in point is the GDB manual: it recently split its Index node
into 2 nodes, called "Concept Index" and "Command and Variable Index",
respectively.  After reverting its Info buffer, 'i' started signaling
an error, complaining about the missing node "Index".

The problem is that info.el caches the Index nodes in the alist stored
in Info-index-nodes.  It should therefore remove from that alist the
association of the Info file whose buffer is reverted.
