I determined by experiment that 77 needs to be added to
max-lisp-eval-depth to permit the debugger to print
((1 (2 (3 (4 (5 (6 (7 (8))))))))).  So I changed the increment to 100.
But I really have no idea what is reasonable for a safety margin.
Here's a new patch with comments.

Subject: [PATCH] Increase max-lisp-eval-depth adjustment while in debugger

* src/eval.c (call_debugger): Increase the amount of extra Lisp
evaluation depth given to the debugger to allow it to call cl-print.
* lisp/emacs-lisp/debug.el (debugger-setup-buffer): Add a comment
to suggest updating call_debugger when changing print-level.
