bug#23865: 24.5; doc string of `tramp-remote-path'

There is another special symbol `tramp-own-remote-path` that can be added to `tramp-remote-path`.  Both of the special symbols show up in customize.  The docstring should definitely mention both.

The doc string says that the value is a list of directories.  But the
default value is a list of directories, but including the symbol
`tramp-default-remote-path' as the head of the list.  That symbol
doesn't look like a directory.  How is a user to understand this?
