No, the protection was meant to be more general: to avoid calling
overlay modification hooks when the overlay in question is from the
wrong buffer.  The particular bug in C code which unearthed the
problem was just one such case, but we have no reason to believe that
it's the only such case.

I'm not opposed to making the change you suggested for xdisp.c
(although maybe it should go to master, not to emacs-26), but I would
like to keep the protection in buffer.c.  It just needs to be more
fine-grained, to avoid causing adverse side effects, such as the
problem reported here.

With that in mind, WDYT about the patch below, which replaces the
buffer.c portion of your patch?  I've ran the tests for both bug#21824
and for this bug, and they both pass with the patch installed and with
unmodified xdisp.c.

Thanks.
