I've confirmed that the example still infloops in Emacs 27, and that
your example doesn't, so I've committed it to the Emacs trunk.

Here's the code:

             (progn
               (goto-char (match-beginning 1))
               (unless (if hs-hide-all-non-comment-function
                           (funcall hs-hide-all-non-comment-function)
                         (hs-hide-block-at-point t))
                 ;; Go to end of matched data to prevent from getting stuck
                 ;; with an endless loop.
                 (goto-char (match-end 0))))

`hs-hide-block-at-point' calls a lot of functions that change match
data, so presumably `hs-hide-all-non-comment-function' is allowed, too.
But this all seems nonsensical -- what `match-end' points to here seems
pretty random.  So it looks like a bug to me.
