It doesn't work when dired-omit-files-p is saved in .emacs by customize.
But seems this is a problem of customize: it can't restore variable aliases.

For example, try in a new Emacs session:

 (custom-set-variables '(dired-omit-files-p t))
 (require 'dired-x)

Returns: nil

And the new `dired-omit-mode' is not a customizable variable
anymore (like `dired-omit-files-p' was before) because it is
defined without `:global t'.  This means that users can't customize
this variable and should write the code in .emacs to toggle it
buffer-locally in the dired mode hook.
