Invoking 'f' from the log shown by "C-x v L" (and also "C-x v b")
makes no sense: one cannot "visit the version" except in the context
of a specific file or a set of files. And "C-x v L" is not about a
file, it's about the whole tree. Without a specific file,
log-view-find-revision cannot show anything sensible, even if we fix
the vc-nil problem.
Btw, it looks like this command never worked from these two varieties
of log buffers.
My suggestion is to bind 'f' in these two kinds of listings to a
different command, which would ask the user what file to show at that
