What this has to do with the above code change? Those two versions
compile most likely to almost if not exactly same machine code.

Both the original code and your updated blacklist cases where either
of those flags is set.

Yes.

I'm starting to think that the code might be easier to follow if we
removed 'flags' and store sm to the priv struct and put conditionals in
places where we need them based on sm.

I think the 'flags' field was not a good idea in the first place.
