I think this use case should be mostly covered by the recently added
ibuffer-filter-by-directory command:

        ibuffer: New filters and commands

But it would seem that this command never got a key binding.  This is an
excerpt from C-h f ibuffer-mode:

    Filtering commands:

      ‘M-x ibuffer-filter-chosen-by-completion’ - Select and apply
filter chosen by completion.
      ‘/ RET’ - Add a filter by any major mode.
      ‘/ m’ - Add a filter by a major mode now in use.
      ‘/ M’ - Add a filter by derived mode.
      ‘/ n’ - Add a filter by buffer name.
      ‘/ c’ - Add a filter by buffer content.
      ‘/ b’ - Add a filter by basename.
      ‘M-x ibuffer-filter-by-directory’ - Add a filter by directory name.
      ‘/ f’ - Add a filter by filename.
      ‘/ .’ - Add a filter by file extension.

I suggest to add the keybinding "/ F" for ibuffer-filter-by-directory
and "/ SPC" for ibuffer-filter-chosen-by-completion.  Perhaps "/ d" or
"/ D" would be more natural for the directory case, but alas they are
already taken.

Please see the attached patch.

Thanks,
Stefan Kangas
