I don't think `diff-latest-backup-file' belongs in files.el, but it
ought to be autoloaded if dired-diff uses it.  I did that in trunk.

Frankly, I'm not sure `diff-latest-backup-file' needs to exist.  Its
only purpose is to run the `diff-latest-backup-file' file handler if
there's one, but nothing in the Emacs code tree actually implements that
handler.  So it seems to be a bit of useless cruft.
