How many candidate passwords does this correspond to?  Also, is this
single kernel call applied to all loaded salts at once (already in GPU
memory)?  Sorry I don't recall this detail.

Oh, I just realized magnum and Royce never mentioned the loaded hash and
salt counts, just the c/s rate.  So it was a meaningless comparison!
This explains it.
