Hi Juri,

thanks for working on this!

Ok.  In the meanwhile, I wrote a proof of concept, which seems to work
well (just for the record):

(defun dired-search-forward-filename-regexp (&rest args)
  (catch 'result
    (while t
      (let* ((result (apply #'search-forward-regexp args))
             (beg (and result (match-beginning 0)))
             (end (and result (match-end 0))))
        (if (or (not result)
                (and (get-text-property beg 'dired-filename)
                     (or (get-text-property end 'dired-filename)
                         (eq (char-after end) ?\n))))
            (throw 'result result)
          (if (eobp)
              (throw 'result nil)
            (goto-char (1+ beg))))))))

To test shortly, just eval

 (defun isearch-search-fun () 'dired-search-forward-filename-regexp)

Works well for me.  But I think that your approach is more appropriate

I quickly tested it.  But it doesn't yet do the right thing.  For the
first search hit, it does - but if you repeat searching (by repeatedly
hitting C-M-s), the behavior is like it is now - i.e., with repeated
searching, there is no progress.  Do you need to run
`isearch-search-fun-pre-hook' at other places as well?
