Subject: bug#20558: 24.4; vc-revert on deleted file (git and svn should be more consistent)

Visit a file in a git or svn checkout.  Unknown to emacs, delete that
file.  Then do vc-revert to get back the original contents from version

When vc-mode is used with a Subversion working copy, reverting a file
which has vanished on disk (but where the buffer is not marked as
modified) will just get a fresh copy and put it in the buffer.  That is
perhaps not ideal because it loses local changes.

When vc-mode is used with git, on reverting a file which no longer exists
on disk (where the buffer is not marked as modified), a diff is shown between 
empty file and the current contents in version control.  That is not a
particularly helpful diff to show the user.

If the file no longer exists on disk, then I suggest vc-revert
should act as follows:

- If the buffer is marked as modified, offer to save it, and after
  saving show diffs and prompt to revert as usual.

- If the buffer is not marked as modified, a diff should still be shown
  between the current buffer contents and what would be fetched from the
  version control system to replace it.  If that diff is empty, then
  just go ahead and revert.

Or alternatively, vc-revert should just automatically save-buffer first
if the underlying file no longer exists on disk.
