Release notes for openssh 6.7 [1] tell:

 * ssh(1): Add a %C escape sequence for LocalCommand and ControlPath
   that expands to a unique identifer based on a hash of the tuple of
   (local host, remote user, hostname, port). Helps avoid exceeding
   miserly pathname limits for Unix domain sockets in multiplexing
   control paths; bz#2220

I changed `tramp-ssh-controlmaster-options' as follows:

(setq tramp-ssh-controlmaster-options "-o ControlPath=%%C -o
ControlMaster=auto -o ControlPersist=no")

And it started working.

BTW, "name is too long" errors also occurred with 6.6, too.  And the
template was expanded similarly, I checked that.

The original value contained "address@hidden:%%p".  %r, %h and %p could be
substituted by %C as the above doc says.  But what about %t?  It's a
temporary file as I understand and is substituted by Tramp, not by ssh.
Is it critical that it should be present in the resulting file name?
