Hmm. That is the variable I'm currently using, but I thought it was
deprecated. In addition, it doesn't seem to be declared:

M-x describe-variable only finds

Maybe native-comp-deferred-compilation is only declared in a let-binding

So if native-comp-deferred-compilation is fully supported in it's
current form, I'm happy.
