Since Emacs-21, the slow access should never happen upon find-file
(only upon vc-next-action or somesuch).  Otherwise, it's a bug and
you should report it.

The suggestion is meant for when you set the var to a non-nil value.
In your case the "replacement" is vc-handled-backends, but as mentioned
above if you need to bind it to nil, it might be due to a bug.
