Fall back to `current-directory` when `current-load-relative-directory`
is #f.

This change also affects `deserialize` --- not because byte code
loading uses it directly in this case, but because they share a helper
function, which exposes the issue. This implementation change is
worrying (even though it makes the implementation match the
documentation), but unless we discover that some use of serialization
needs absolute paths deseialized as relative, is seems better to be
consistent everywhere about falling back to `currenrt-directory`. This
aspect of the change can be reverted separately (by adding more code)
if needed.
