Bring Back the Hidden /Users Folder in OS X 10.9.3

Really bizarre bug in the 10.9.3 update released yesterday. Apparently, for some people, the root /Users/ folder is being hidden; using chflags doesn’t work on it because it re-hides itself after a reboot. This doesn’t appear to be akin to the decision to hide ~/Library/, but just a strange bug. I wasn’t affected, but Kirk McElhearn has a couple of great workarounds if you were.
