Comment (by DJPaul):

 I have revisited this area of code since working on another patch.
 `bp_get_default_options()` is getting called on every page load, via
 `bp_core_set_avatar_constants()`, which causes options to be added if
 they're missing in the database. See near the "Missing some options, so do
 some one-time fixing." bit. I'm tempted to remove those fixer lines,
 because I'm not sure why they are there. Anyone else think it's a good

 That aside, for upgrades, `bp_update_to_2_7()` is instantly updating the
 option with a new key. If we set the key in `bp_core_install_emails()`,
 it'd be set in `bp_update_to_2_5()`. New installs would have gotten it...
 I'm not sure how, probably working on the assumption that
 `bp_get_default_options` would run once via `bp_add_options()`.

 To avoid having to include `pluggable.php`, because i'm worried about
 causing load-order issues with other plugins that override pluggable
 function, how about:

 1) We update `bp_core_get_root_options()` and prevent it adding "missing
 2) And we update `bp_get_default_options()` and add a note saying that
 this function should not rely on any WordPress functions.
 3) As a consequence, we set the default value of `bp-emails-unsubscribe-
 salt` to an empty string in `bp_get_default_options`.
 4) We continue to set `bp-emails-unsubscribe-salt` in `bp_update_to_2_7`,
 but we add setting it in `bp_version_updater` in the `bp_is_install()`
 bit, thus setting it for new installs.

 This should stop a "get" function setting database values, prevent the
 fatal error that this ticket describes, and make it clearer where the
 default options are set for on new install/update.

 (I don't think we should set `bp-emails-unsubscribe-salt` in
 `bp_core_install_emails()` because that can be called from one of the BP
 Tools, and updating this nonce will break all previous unsubscribe
