There are almost none of them.  But yes, those which do should have a
similar problem.

Then it's probably some inefficiency in insert-file-contents, when it
is called to revert a buffer.  If you have time, please take a look
what happens there, I suspect we reallocate the buffer in very small
chunks, instead of doing it with larger increments.  (With compressed
files, it's hard to do, because the size of the uncompressed file is
not known in advance.)
