A faster way to do that is with find-alternate-file (usually bound to
C-x C-v) and then accept the default which will be the file you're
currently visiting.  This will re-load the file from disk, re-start
the appropriate mode, and eval the local variables.

That doesn't address your point of any other way to do it, but makes
your way easier to do.
