Thanks! I'll accept it as-is but there seem to be room for improvement: 
For example, we have shared functions for PBKDF2-SHA1 using SSE2 and 
with some other optimizations, it may be 3-8 times faster (see 
pbkdf2-hmac-sha1_fmt_plug.c for example use). Also, just from a very 
quick look it appears to me you could use a normal binary instead of 
treating it as a "non-hash" but I may be wrong. And that will probably 
not matter unless you try to crack lots of hashes at once, which is 
probably not the normal use case.
