I wasn't sure how the advice mechanism actually works, and I thought
that maybe my change could have forced people to recompile Emacs to make
it work.  Also, I'm not the maintainer of tramp-vc.el, so I thought I'd
better ask.

I will install the changes now and comment out the defadvice in
tramp-vc.el.  Michael Albinus can then have a closer look.
