In 3.0.7, this:

  (define-syntax foo
    (syntax-rules ()
      ((_ x) (eq? #nil x))))

  (foo #t)

began crashing like this:

  ice-9/psyntax.scm:2795:12: In procedure syntax-violation:
  Syntax error:
  unknown location: unexpected syntax in form ()

git bisect suggested the source of the trouble might be this change:

  commit 0cc799185576712d69f11fc794454f2f5447bef7
  Date:   Thu Feb 25 09:33:15 2021 +0100

    Ensure that (syntax ()) results in ()

    * module/ice-9/psyntax.scm: Add a special case for ().  There are
    already special cases for pairs, vectors, etc; the issue is that with
    read-syntax, the () might be come into psyntax as an annotated syntax
    object, which here we would want to strip, to preserve the invariant to
    psyntax users that all lists are unwrapped.

And this change to the same code appears to fix the problem, while still
passing all the existing tests (the assumption being that we might need
to special case #nil too):

  +      (foo #nil))))

   ;;; Local Variables:

So I wondered whether this might be a plausible fix.

(I originally noticed because it breaks lokke, which like the elisp
 dialect, depends more heavily on #nil.)
