bug#33460: 24.4; Eshell histfile symlinks not followed

If the file named by the value of option `eshell-history-file-name' is
a symbolic link, then it will be replaced and overwritten instead. It
should be dereferenced (followed) first, and its target file should be
replaced and overwritten.

The attached patch uses function `file-truename' to fix this. The
patch was made using source cloned from git savannah HEAD today, which
I think is version 26.1.90, based on ChangeLog.3 in the cloned repo.
