As I wrote in:

http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-dev/2012/04/02/25

"... change that to only set OS_TIMER to 0 when
building with OpenCL support with AMD SDK specifically (since OS_TIMER 1
is preferable when we can have it), but to do it from both header files."

I think this is what we should do, and I am leaving the task for you
(identify and use the right #ifdef line).

By "both header files" I mean x86-64.h and x86-sse.h.  I think this is
not relevant to any other archs currently.

Thanks,

Alexander
