What should be the LINKNAME argument of make-symbolic-link when
invoking Tramp?  For non-absolute link targets, the following appears

(make-symbolic-link "/address@hidden:/name/of/file" "linkname")

So the LINKNAME argument does not look like a Tramp filename.  But
what if the target of the symbolic link is an absolute filename?
Which of the two kinds of calls do we expect?

(make-symbolic-link "/address@hidden:/name/of/file" 
(make-symbolic-link "/address@hidden:/name/of/file" "/path/to/target")


PS: Surprised that nobody has reported bugs about make-symbolic-link
    in Tramp, yet.  It must have been buggy for years.
