Uh, actually, now I'm getting the same results as you (i.e., make
eieio-tests TEST_LOAD_EL=no passes on master for me, though the #27718
test case does fail).  Perhaps I accidentally ran an eieio-tests.elc
file produced by a patched Emacs using a non-patched Emacs before?

Okay, so the patch does make a couple more tests fail, but I think it's
actually an improvement since #27718 shows that the scenario was already
failing outside of ert-deftest, i.e., in this case your patch is making
code inside the test more like code outside the test.  We can just mark
those as expected failures when compiled.

I will merge to master in a few days, assuming there are no objections.
