Oh, dear, I took Eli's okay and commited. I always was over
enthusiastic. I think I better revert.

I tried that

      specbind (intern("buffer-undo-list"), Qnil);

It's set in several places to Qt, then restored at the end here.

      if (!empty_undo_list_p)
          bset_undo_list (current_buffer, old_undo);
          if (CONSP (old_undo) && inserted != old_inserted)
              /* Adjust the last undo record for the size change during
                 the format conversion.  */
              Lisp_Object tem = XCAR (old_undo);
              if (CONSP (tem) && INTEGERP (XCAR (tem))
                  && INTEGERP (XCDR (tem))
                  && XFASTINT (XCDR (tem)) == PT + old_inserted)
                XSETCDR (tem, make_number (PT + inserted));

At least that was my theory; I tested it by adding print statements to
run_undoable_change which running, but returning before the call0.

run_undoable_change (void)
  if (EQ (BVAR (current_buffer, undo_list), Qt))

  call0 (Qundo_auto__undoable_change);

The code is convoluted enough, though, that I am worried that I may have
got this wrong.

Anyway, I've just testing emacs-25 after my change, the patch seems to
be doing very bad things -- i.e. leaving buffer-undo-list as Qt. So, I
think I really sure revert, then worry about it tomorrow.
