Good news.  Sorry to unnecessarily raise the warning flag.

I will have TS data out shortly.  I have also added lines in ts.dat for CUDA
and OpenCL, but it appears openCL only deals with 15 byte plaintext, so we
will have to adjust the expectation count for that line.  I really need to
see if I can have the TS auth-detect and correct for this, now that the
plaintextlen is in the -list=format-all-details
