I just posted john-1.7.7-jumbo-5-RC6-various-patches.diff.gz to the wiki 
but unfortunately there are *still* issues with 32-bit SSE (will be 
posted separately) and that's why it's just an incremental patch.

This is to be applied onto john-1.7.7-jumbo-5-RC6 *after* the three 
other incremental patches that was already released. This patch includes 
the following:

* A couple of extra MPI defines in Makefile, for easy mitigation of any 
bugs in the MPI environment.
* Reverted some changes to hmacmd5.[hc] (and the formats that use it) so 
the function again uses its original function definition and is 
thread-safe with no hassle. It's still optimised and it should (really) 
still work on big-endian and aligned systems. It's not yet tested on 
Sparc64 or cc (but it is on Sparc32 and gcc).
* Added a linux-x86-64-32-clang build to Makefile (like the others it's 
not "announced") for regression testing (whatever it is worth)
* Since Jumbo-5-RC-1 we have muted ETA completely unless progress was 
more than 0.00%. This is reverted, but now it's indicated that we see a 
"best case ETA" using "ETA >xxx" instead of "ETA: xxxx"
* Added a prepare() function to mssql05 so it can load the 
case-sensitive part of old-type hashes too.
* Fixed an OMP bug in mssql that was introduced by some other recent 
patch, likely the SSE2 patch that was posted earlier today.
* Fixed a bug in salted_sha1 (memset sizeof(pointer) instead of the 
alloced size).
