[PATCH] Handle first change undo marker correctly at address@hidden

I've run into the following problem the other day:
(defun common ()
  (setq buffer-undo-list nil))

(defun insert-bad ()
  (insert-file-contents "/etc/fstab"))

(defun insert-good ()
  (insert "foobar"))

If I open a file and run insert-good and then I undo, the file goes back
to unmodified state.

If I open a file and run insert-bad and then I undo, the file doesn't
go back to unmodified state.

Investigating, it turned out that if insert-file-contents is ran for
an unmodified buffer, the first change marker of (t HIGH . LOW) is not
inserted although it should've been.

This is because of a bug in address@hidden, where by the time
the record_insert is ran at the end, MODIFF is already too high.
MODIFF gets increased in insert_from_gap (used by produce_chars).  But
at the point of increase there is a record_insert before:
  record_insert (GPT, nchars);

So why it's not having the effect of recording first change?  Because
decode_coding disables undo list handling at the beginning of the
function.  Therefore, my solution is to record the first change (if
MODIFF <= SAVE_MODIFF) before the undo list handling gets disabled.

I attached the patch, please consider applying it.
