Actually, here's a more complete story:

- in December 2014, Jim ripped common code from bcrypt and
bcrypt-opencl, and placed in BF_common.h & BF_common_plug.c. At that
point and up until today, the opencl would "accept" $2y$ but it's
unclear to me if it did so 100% correctly.

- today, I reverted Jim's patch because I can't maintain that big a
deviation from the core tree. Then I merged current core CVS.
