I guess you want a notification to come up when a file is reverted?

First of all, but this action just should follow with MediaWiki-revert method:
''Undid revision 123456789 by User (talk)''
not
''User uploaded a new version of File:xxx''

You see, it shouldn't appear as new upload, but a revert.

Merging comment 1 from bug 30197 (Unused Log upload/revert):
As current type is upload/overwrite used for file reverts. But $wgLogActions
has an entry for that, that should used when reverting a file, that is right.
