    * doc/lispref/files.texi (File Attributes): Describe it.
    (Magic File Names): Use it.
    * etc/NEWS: Document the change.
    * lisp/files.el (remote-file-name-inhibit-cache):
    * lisp/time.el (display-time-file-nonempty-p): Use it.
    * lisp/files.el (after-find-file): Don't chase links before calling
    file-exists-p, as file-exists-p already does the right thing.
    * src/dired.c (directory_files_internal, Ffile_attributes):
    New arg follow_symlinks.  All uses changed.
