(setf compiler-macro-function)

It seems that defining compiler macros with define-compiler-macro works
but setting with setf doesn't.

In particular, I'm wanting to use setf with a value of nil to remove a
possibly existing compiler macro definition.  However, when I do this in
GCL I get an error:

GCL (GNU Common Lisp)  2.6.12 ANSI    Fri Apr 22 15:51:11 UTC 2016

>(setf (compiler-macro-function 'foo) nil)

Fast links are on: do (si::use-fast-links nil) for debugging
Signalled by EVAL.
Condition in EVAL [or a callee]: INTERNAL-SIMPLE-PROGRAM-ERROR: Cannot expand 

Broken at SETF.  Type :H for Help.
    1  Return to top level.

Is this a known problem?

This is for a bugfix in Maxima.  Do you have any advice on what to do
here when using GCL?

I see that system:undef-compiler-macro exists.  Does this do what I'm
wanting (as the name suggests)?  If so, will it continue to be around in
the future even if the stuff above is working?
