The call to read-from-minibuffer in read--expression triggers
change-major-mode-hook and after-change-major-mode-hook.

These in turn call turn-on-eldoc-mode, which calls eldoc--supported-p,
which checks the value of eldoc-documentation-function.

The problem is that minibuffer-setup-hook, which sets
eldoc-documentation-function, has not yet run at this stage, so the
minibuffer is not yet considered suitable for enabling eldoc-mode.

Should this log entry mention bug#27202 as well?

This looks fine to me (the only alternative I can think of is creating a
new major mode specifically for read--expression), but shouldn't this
call to eldoc-mode be bundled in the same hook function with...

...this advice?
