bug#16582: Bug: tramp shell command doesn't read stdin

Hi,

there is a regression introduced by this commit:

e43048325611953396186b569447a3754422ddc3
Author: Michael Albinus <address@hidden>

    Bug#16045
    
    * progmodes/compile.el (compilation-start):
    * progmodes/grep.el (rgrep): Revert change of 2012-12-20 (r111276).
    
    * net/tramp-sh.el (tramp-sh-handle-start-file-process):
    Handle long command lines, lasting from "sh -c ...".  (Bug#16045)


The following syntax used to execute tramp shell command:
exec <<EOF /bin/bash
commands
EOF
prevents users to send inputs to bash using stdin.
For example, the following does not works anymore:

exec <<EOF /bin/bash
read line;
echo $line;
EOF

I don't understand what was this problem of long command lines (Bug#16045): I've tried to execute shell comands with huge command lines and all were successfull.
To keep the approach of splitting the lines, I would suggest something like that:
exec /bin/bash -c "
commands
on
multiple lines
"

But this needs to backslash all shell specific characters, and I don't know if there is really benefit compared to the original solution (before <<EOF)

What do you think?
