This is right, there is no code referencing opt_skb: compare with net/ipv6/tcp_ipv6.c.
Until someone has time to add the missing DCCP-specific code, it does seem better
to replace the dead part with a FIXME. This is done by the patch below, applies to
davem-net2.6 and has been tested to compile.

Thanks, I've been again sidetracked by Real Life(tm) but hopefully
tomorrow I'll go over all the DCCP pending patches backlog and get
them into tree to submit to Dave.
