I'm trying to figure out where the overhead lies. I thought it might be the
cmp_all() function. So I tried using openmp in cmp_all. However there was
no improvement at all. This makes me think that the overhead lies primarily
in set_key which is called maximum number of times. Can you provide any
suggestions? How about doing the set key in GPU using another kernel?
