BTW, how did you locate the hashes corresponding to the current salt on
GPU in your existing (now lost?) implementation of loaded hashes?  Did
you possibly implement some hash table lookups by salt value?  Or do you
assume that crypt_all() is called for all salts sequentially (in the
same order they were seen before)?  (This might be risky.)

Having a struct db_salt pointer is great on CPU, but it's still not
quite it on GPU.  So maybe in GPU-enabled builds you need to add an
"unsigned int id;" field to struct db_salt, fill these fields with
sequential numbers (as salts are allocated), pass them to GPU from
crypt_all() (this will be as simple as passing salt->id), and use them
as array indices there (you know the salt count from reset()'s
db->salt_count, so you can allocate this array to the right size).

Sounds good?
