 Added a new patch based on @rcoll's patch for the same.

 - Use the more efficient wp_get_mu_plugins() function instead of
 - Allow for bootstrapped MU plugins
 - Added relevant unit tests
 - Made the wp_get_mu_plugins() function slightly more efficient as reading
 directories is expensive and the function might now be called several
 - Made the touched functions comply with code style guidelines
 - Checked all core uses of the touched functions (and kept the
 `$check_all` default set to `false` to prevent having to change nearly all
 uses in core)

 What I didn't do:
 - Add unit tests for the network version as that would involve duplicating
 the `_back_up_drop_ins()`, `_restore_drop_ins()`, `_back_up_mu_plugins()`
 and `_restore_mu_plugins()` methods from the `Tests_Admin_includesPlugin`
 class to the `Tests_Multisite_Network` class or moving these methods
 elsewhere (to the `WP_UnitTestCase` class would seem a logical place)
