The changed occurrence is 'dired-query',
and the justification is to fix the bug report #42708.

Also I checked other 4 occurrences of `read-char-choice' in
auth-source.el, emacs-lisp/package.el, net/tramp-cmds.el
and progmodes/octave.el.  But apparently they use more complex
logic, so replacing them with `read-char-from-minibuffer'
is not a straightforward task.
