bug#29501: 27.0.50; Remote file handling is broken

0. emacs -Q
1. Evaluating this sexp: (dired "/su::/var/log")
   fails to prompt for root's password and errors with this backtrace:

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Directory /su::/var/log inaccessible or 
nonexistent")
  signal(error ("Directory /su::/var/log inaccessible or nonexistent"))
  error("Directory %s inaccessible or nonexistent" "/su::/var/log")
  dired-readin-insert()
  dired-readin()
  dired-internal-noselect("/su::/var/log" nil)
  dired-noselect("/su::/var/log" nil)
  dired("/su::/var/log")
  eval((dired "/su::/var/log") nil)
  elisp--eval-last-sexp(t)
  eval-last-sexp(t)
  eval-print-last-sexp(nil)
  funcall-interactively(eval-print-last-sexp nil)
  call-interactively(eval-print-last-sexp nil nil)
  command-execute(eval-print-last-sexp)

A similar failure happens when trying to access a real remote file via
e.g. sftp, except that the error is `file-missing "Setting current
directory" "No such file or directory"'.

The failure happens when dired-insert-directory calls
(file-remote-p "/su::/var/log")
, which calls 
(find-file-name-handler "/su::/var/log" 'file-remote-p)
, and both of these return nil.

The failure does not happen in emacs-26; there 
(file-remote-p "/su::/var/log") 
returns 
#("/su:address@hidden:" 4 8 (tramp-default t))
and 
(find-file-name-handler "/su::/var/log" 'file-remote-p) 
returns
tramp-file-name-handler

I bisected the failure to this commit:

commit 0f286ca85a259575b67dba520ff72e59cc011426
Author: Michael Albinus <address@hidden>

  Fix Bug#28889
  
  * lisp/net/tramp.el: Change autoload cookie to tramp-autoload cookie.
  (tramp-completion-file-name-regexp-default)
  (tramp-completion-file-name-handler-alist)
  (tramp-completion-file-name-handler): Remove autoload cookie.
  (tramp-initial-completion-file-name-regexp): Remove.
  (tramp-autoload-file-name-regexp): New defconst.
  (tramp-register-autoload-file-name-handlers): Use it.
  (with-parsed-tramp-file-name): Adapt docstring.  Compute
  `tramp-file-name' slots.  (Bug#28889)

This commit is also in emacs-26, so it would seem that some later commit
to emacs-26 fixed it and this hasn't been merged to master.  I bisected
on master between 090f4f157eea6f0d0d13963520f5e05706de142f, which is my
last build on master where the failure does not occur, and
83dc3f0e9b518e45bcfb0aaebcc706f79622f157, which is my first build on
master where the failure does occur.  (It's too late for me to bisect on
emacs-26 now; if necessary, I can try to do it in the next few days.)
