Now I finally run through all the self-tests, using JtR linked with OpenSSL on MIC. All formats pass self-tests except for dominosec8, which just segfaults. (https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1452 <https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1452>)

Yet there're still something wrong in dynamic formats. Some formats would fail with SIMD_PARA_MD4 bigger than 1. Potentially more issues would arise with other combination of interleaving factors. (https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1437 <https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues/1437>)

Anyway I think it's safe to use the latest OpenSSL with JtR on MIC now. I've updated the instructions on building either OpenSSL or LibreSSL for MIC.
