Recipe to reproduce:

  emacs -Q
  C-x b foo RET
  C-x b bar RET
  M-x ediff-buffers RET RET RET

After typing 'q' into the Ediff control frame, the prompt displayed in
the minibuffer is this:

  Quit this Ediff session? (y or n)  switch-frame-_

where '_' indicates the cursor position.  That "switch-frame-" prefix
is unexpected, and shouldn't be shown.

I suspect this commit:

  commit 5dc644a6b01e2cf950ff617ab15be4bf1917c38c
  Author: Stefan Monnier <address@hidden>
  Date:   Tue Sep 1 21:14:18 2015 -0400

      Generalize the prefix-command machinery of C-u

My evidence is that the problem appeared between Sep 1 and Sep 2 (I
have binaries built on both these dates), and the above seems the only
relevant change during that time.
