I see Glenn has already reverted the problematic commit [78125f3744],
thanks Glenn!  I'm sorry I didn't try to build myself before suggesting
the change.

  Unbreak bootstrap

Something about

  (declare (compiler-macro (lambda (_) `(= 0 ,number))))

requires both cadr and cddr, and it's not the backquote.  My first
thought is that it relates to the compiler-macro and its expansion by
macroexp.el; can anyone confirm this or correct me?

Would adding a comment along the following lines be welcome?
