I don't remember suggesting this :-).

Maybe I missed something but it sounds like this change is just
optimizing the SPMT parsing a bit, and to be honest, I'm not sure this
is really needed. Most of the time, smpt_len will be rather small, so
trying to bail out earlier is not bringing much perf improvements.
