This would also be unfair if the different implementations don't support
the same maximum password length:

raw-sha1	55
raw-sha1-ng	15

But even with the same format name and the same source file there is no
guarantee that the maximum password length for the sse2 implementation
is the same as for the mmx implementaion.
So we might compare apples to oranges even if we just compare an sse2
and an mmy build.
