With an OpenCL implementation it's probably not worth it at all. So I won't commit it, it's better to have text book code for now. Hm, or maybe I can use in a more straight-forward way to just short-cut crypt_all() when possible.

Did so, along with a number of other minor optimisations that almost don't show in benchmarking. More importantly I dropped the compile-time choice for PBKDF2 so we now always use the fast PBKDF2 for passwords up to 16 characters, and the slower function for longer passwords.
