#54758: Front page not embeddable when using a static page_on_front

 When a site is configured with a page_on_front, Canonical kicks in and
 redirects the user to the homepage.

 This is caused by Canonical not being embed-aware.

 As an example, the WordPress.org homepage should be embeddable:
 $ curl -Is https://wordpress.org/embed/ https://en-au.wordpress.org/embed/
 | grep -E '^(HTTP|location)'
 HTTP/2 301
 location: https://wordpress.org/
 HTTP/2 301
 location: https://en-au.wordpress.org/

 The non-pretty embeds do however work, unfortunately WordPress doesn't
 link to these when rewrites are enabled:
 $ curl -Is https://wordpress.org/?embed=1 https://en-
 au.wordpress.org/?embed=1 | grep -E '^(HTTP|location)'
 HTTP/2 200
 HTTP/2 200

 After the PR attached to this ticket:
 $ curl -ILs https://wordpress.org/embed/ https://en-
 au.wordpress.org/embed/ | grep -E '^(HTTP|location)'
 HTTP/2 200
 HTTP/2 200

 The fix attached is a combination bugfix/enhancement, as I've fixed the
 bug by making canonical embed aware, so it redirects to the canonical
 embed location.

 The PR isn't complete, as it appears to still fail on one of the testcases
 I added, and appears to have altered (Potentially fixed?) the behaviour of
 another canonical test.

 A more targeted fix would be to disable canonical when `is_embed()` is
