The two patches look good to me.  Thanks for continuing this work!

This is unfortunate.  The use of a flag word or using bit-fields are
essentially equivalent so its unfortunate that the conversion to using
one or the other caused review churn.  My own preference would be to use
bit-fields ;)  I also noticed that the flags you are using start with
OPT_* which conflict with the parse-options namespace, sorry for not
catching this when a few of your older patches made it into master.
This isn't a big deal since no symbols look to collide so I am not
suggesting you change this since I would prefer to eliminate more
unnecessary review churn on this series.
