Thanks. I've applied it also for inotify, gfile, inotifywait and
gio-monitor. All tests passed, at least the local
ones. auto-revert-test05-global-notify-remote (see below) failed; this
one I could debug myself once the patch has landed in master. I suspect
timing issues.

Btw, you could always run the four tests on emba.gnu.org. Submit a
change (also a git branch would do), and the bot on emba.git.org would
run these test constellations for you. Same for filenotify-tests.

Remove "or globally".

Pls add a docstring.

Quote `global-auto-revert-mode'. Check also, whether file notification
is enabled:

(skip-unless (or file-notify--library
                 (file-remote-p temporary-file-directory)))

> +  (let* ((auto-revert-avoid-polling t)

Enable file notification explicitly. You don't know, whether the user
has disabled it.

(let* ((auto-revert-use-notify t)
       (auto-revert-avoid-polling t)

> +         (auto-revert-interval 2)       ; To speed up the test.

Do we really want this? I prefer to test the unmodified package. If you
believe this takes too much time for ordinary "make check" calls, you
might tag the test case as :expensive-test, like
auto-revert-test01-auto-revert-several-files and

> +          (global-auto-revert-mode 1)   ; Turn it on.

Save the value of global-auto-revert-mode, and reset it in Cleanup. You
don't know the user's settings.

Why not (ignore-errors (kill-buffer buf)) ?

Add the remote test case:

(auto-revert--deftest-remote auto-revert-test05-global-notify
  "Test `global-auto-revert-mode' without polling for remote buffers."

Best regards, Michael.
