mscash1 is very fast and use an identical set_key_helper() as NT, so it 
would probably benefit, but much less. There is a small performance drop 
for the "Only one salt" case. I'll do it and post a patch.

I think all other formats use shared functions. We can probably optimise 
something in the shared code too. There are some beneficial inlining we 
are currently missing unless we build with icc.
