bug#17467: 24.3; locate-library returning spurious path

I think locate-library has an extra parameter nosuffix, so (locate-library "tramp.el" 'nosuffix) will find "tramp.el." I guess for backward compatibility we can set nosuffix to t whenever the name has a valid suffix already.

What if I say

  (locate-library "tramp.el")

Shouldn't it be able to find tramp.el.gz then?
