The `opcache.preload` documentation ( states:

"[…] either by includeing them or by using the opcache_compile_file() function"

However, using `include`, `include_once`, `require` or `require_once` doesn't seem to actually preload files.

Test script:
The source code:

The preload file:

Tested by dumping `opcache_get_status()['scripts']` right after a server restart:

Using `opcache_compile_file()`, 39 files are available, while only 16 files are available when using `require` or `include` (these are all non-class files)

I can't reproduce this. Using require_once I get 859 preloaded classes. Using require I get a fatal error due to a redeclared class.
