Sounds fine.

That's curious.  Thank you for sharing this info.  I guess, this might
also be what caused the false positive in my testing of the SHA-256
"slow" patch.  (I think the correct output was left somewhere in memory
from a test.)

If it's for phpass, then why do you call it sha256cuda?  Is that just an
error in your posting above?

The "9" means 2048 iterations, so your 30k c/s means 60 million
iterations of the MD5 compression function per second.  This is
reasonable for a low-end/old GPU, although as you correctly say there's
a lot of room for improvement.

Please upload your phpass code to the wiki soon!
