This is already the case: `comment-search-forward' consults the value of `comment-use-global-state' only when `comment-use-syntax' is truthy.

- Maybe make comment-use-global-state obsolete.

Context: the problem with syntax-ppss is not so much performance as
correctness, because syntax-ppss can get confused if you use several
syntax-tables in the same buffer (e.g. via font-lock-syntax-table), or
if you use narrowing.

Yes, that seems hard to test for.

And if `syntax-ppss' can be borked in some modes, using its value in `comment-beginning' like I did in the respective patch, also seems unsafe.
