When a buffer is reverted, a message is generated. This can be
suppressed by setting `auto-revert-verbose' to nil.
Reverting may also break markers in the buffer. To avoid that
you may set `revert-buffer-insert-file-contents-function' to the
slower function `revert-buffer-insert-file-contents-delicately'.
See its description for details.
Reverting can sometimes fail to preserve all the markers in the buffer.
To avoid that, set `revert-buffer-insert-file-contents-function' to
the slower function `revert-buffer-insert-file-contents-delicately'.
Use `global-auto-revert-mode' to automatically revert all buffers.

use `revert-buffer-with-fine-grain', which tries harder to
