Neither "C-x d ~/src/*/lisp" nor "C-x d /scp:remotehost:~/src/*/lisp"
works. According to the NEWS entry in your patch, I would expect that at
least the former works.
No, the former must fails because there is n match.  Maybe just the
error is not clear.
The wildcard, ~/src/*/lisp
matches things like:
but not:

I should have said that there exist ~/src/emacs/lisp and
~/src/tramp/lisp. I would expect to see them with "C-x d ~/src/*/lisp".
When you are not using neither 'ls-lisp' nor 'eshell-ls', then it is the
system shell who performs the wildcard expansion.
That means, if the following doesn't work:
M-! ls ~/src/*/lisp RET
C-x d ~/src/*/lisp RET
must fail as well.
