I realize that it doesn't currently matter, but the above modification
of "opt" looks like a bug-waiting-to-happen to me.

I understand that opt isn't currently used after this, but if it ever is
then it is going to come as big a surprise that this implies opt += 8;

This was previously quite clear when the code was inline, but it becomes
problematic when it is factored out.
