#42696: Autosave Notification not dismissible

 If I make changes to a Post/Page and then decide I don't want to keep
 those changes, I'll simpy click away from the edit page.

 The next time I decide to edit the page, I'm prompted with a notification
 advising "There is an autosave of this post that is more recent than the
 version below. View the autosave"


 The only option I'm given is to view the autosaved version. This
 notificaiton should be dismissible. I shouldn't have to view the autosaved
 version when I already know that I don't want it. I also shouldn't have to
 resave the page, just to get rid of the notification.

 I would like to see a Dismiss icon/link so that we can dismiss the
 notification for good. When developing a theme or plugin, we're required
 to make all notifications dismissible. There's no reason why core
 notifcations shouldn't follow the same rules and also be dismissible.
