That is indeed the simplest solution, but it is not the best one.  It
would be better for Ivy to provide its own set-message-function which
plays by the new Emacs 27 rules, i.e. presents the message text in a
way that doesn't completely obscure the original prompt.

Relying on the old behavior was always not a future-proof assumption,
so I see no way around the problem except fixing the code which makes
such assumptions, sorry.
