bug#25577: 26.0.50; Show Ibuffer and jump to line listing current buffer

Severity: wishlist

Suppose current buffer is *foo*, then `list-buffers'
list the buffers with point set at the line listing *foo*.

In the case of `ibuffer', if *Ibuffer* already exists,
the effect of this command is pretty much like
(switch-to-buffer "*Ibuffer*")
i.e., the point is preserved.  This is useful, but quite often
i wish the other behaviour:
To show *Ibuffer* and set point at the line listing *foo*.

This is handy when you have customized `ibuffer-saved-filter-groups',
and you have many lived buffers.

We might get this behaviour in several ways:

1) Via prefix argument: we already use a raw prefix to decide if we
   display *Ibuffer* in a new window or in the current one.
   It might be possible to define prefix "C-u C-u" to mean
   show *Ibuffer* with point at the line showing *foo*.
   This would work but not the easiest to type solution, though.

2) Add a new function:
  (defun ibuffer-jump (&optional other-window-p)
    "Call Ibuffer and set point at the line listing the current buffer."
    (interactive "P")
    (let ((name (buffer-name)))
      (ibuffer other-window-p)
      (ignore-errors (ibuffer-jump-to-buffer name))))

3) Add a new option, something like
  `ibuffer-point-at-current-buffer'.
  When this option is not nil, then `ibuffer' set
  point at *foo*.

I prefer 2) over 3) because i can get both behaviours with easy
in the interactive session.
