This reminded me that I stumbled over the exact same thing in NETLM_fmt 
recently. I know little about bitslicing, but I believe there is none in 
that format. One could of course say that the M$ LM hash is bitsliced 
per se... but that's not the general meaning of bitsliced DES, right? :-)

I suppose it should be removed in J6.
