Can you try and call `c-file-style' with some extra "don't override"
(when called from that hack-local-variables-hook) argument so that any
variable that already has a buffer-local binding will not be overridden?

How 'bout wrapping the call inside (let ((enable-local-variables :safe))?

I don't know what you're referring to here.
