M-x auto-save-visited-mode
M-: (message "%s" "hello")

... Wait 5 seconds ...

Now the message buffer gets cleared and you lose the message. This is
causing usability issues when using eldoc/reading some output message as
it continously gets cleared.

I would expect the `auto-save-visited' feature to not change the behaviour
of the Echo Area. If you compare this to the `auto-save-mode' which
outputs a message indicating a save, but restores the Echo Area after.

I have tracked down this to the `save-some-buffers' function or more
specifically the `map-y-or-n-p' function that it calls. In this function
there is a call to message like `(message "")`.
