context: fix introrev to avoid computation as initially intended

The `filerev.introrev()` method has various logic be as efficient as possible.
In particular, it tries to restrict the range covered by the
`ctx._adjustlinkrev(...)` call. However, it does so using the value returned by
`ctx.rev()`. In some case (eg: copy tracing), that `ctx.rev()` call would do an
`_adjustlinkrev(...)` call on its own, defeating the optimization purpose and
doing the computation twice.

We are about to improve graph traversal associated with copy tracing using code
based on `ctx.introrev()`, so we need this fixed before proceeding further.
