To be clear: the slowness I experience does not seem wholly related to
redisplay: if I move down in a file using 'C-n', without the buffer
scrolling, the movement is very slow. Then when it does actually
update the screen because Iʼve moved point off the bottom, it is again
slow (by a rough measurement, moving from the top to the bottom of my
org file using C-v is approximately twice as slow).

(this is all with 'emacs -Q')

Iʼve just run another test where I scroll my org file programmatically
rather than interactively, and then your patch makes no discernable

(benchmark-run 1000
               (goto-char (point-min))
               (condition-case nil
                   (while t
                 (error nil)))
takes ~15 seconds in both vanilla emacs-26 and with your patch.

Are there any other tests you'd like me to run? (I know nothing about
macOS profiling tools)
