In the meantime I'm shoving in changes in a bunch of OpenCL formats that I think are almost mandatory, like adopting to the count argument to crypt_all() and to LWS/GWS environment variables. The former speeds self-test up a whole lot and the latter will boost testing speed (including Test Suite when I'm done with it).

KWallet is in, so now let's wrap it up for release. I have created a wiki page at http://openwall.info/wiki/john/to-do-list-for-1.7.9-jumbo-8 for tracking issues and who works on what. I have a list of things that will be added to that page within half a day or so.
