The code calls it only 3 times. Due to the autoload, the code of the
defconst was eval'ed twice, so it ends up in 6 calls.

I've changed it to a defcustom and checked it again. Now it is called
only 3 times, and it is called only when you open a remote file
(tramp.el is loaded).

As said above. Also not called when Emacs compiles in batch mode, and alike.

I would like to avoid these calls completely, if somebody could tell me
a robust test for knowing which kind of ControlMaster, ControlPath and
ControlPersist options are supported by the local ssh stanza. And no, I
don't want to check the ssh version; this isn't robust.

Would it be safe to install the patch in the emacs-24 branch? The change
which made Tassilo annoyed was introduced for Emacs 24.5, see Bug#19702.
