Hello, Stefan.

Thanks for looking at my patch.

This bit of code was necessitated by:

commit 3ba6b3a9c1e0565ee5f45f11a9c09702a24f8453

    Speed up byte-compilation and autoload generation by avoiding mode-hooks

    This prevents emacs-lisp-mode-hook from being run everytime an
    autoload file is generated, which can account for a fraction of
    package installation time depending on the hooks the user has
    configured.

    * lisp/emacs-lisp/bytecomp.el (byte-compile-file): Use
    * delay-mode-hooks.

    * lisp/emacs-lisp/autoload.el (autoload-find-file)
    (autoload-find-generated-file): Use delay-mode-hooks.
#########################################################################

if hack-local-variables isn't run, lexical-binding (for example) doesn't
get set up, and make bootstrap fails.

I don't really understand the question.  Sure, that bit of code is ugly.
But the comment both motivates ("it's `byte-compile-file''s fault") and
explains the problem (which is that `delay-mode-hooks' being set would
prevent `run-mode-hook', and thus `hack-local-variable' from running).
It is possible that other stuff might call `normal-mode' like this.
What sort of changes do you advocate for the comment (or for the code)?
