Hey Magnum, I noticed I could pull a bit of work out of the crypt inner loop
and do it during set_key for cheaper. Also a small amount of work could be
moved into crypt (to vectorize it). It's not a huge difference, but I think
it's obviously correct.

BTW, would you like me to look into handling longer passwords without
burning cycles for the common (len <= 15) case? I don't think it's possible
to do it for free, but maybe it won't be too expensive.
