I've created 0-revision (simple raw, easy to understand, without
"dirty" optimizations)
It's already uploaded on wiki (few minutes ago), and benchmarks
results are on wiki gpu subpage.

I'm doing code backups after grater changes, and often do not want to
share dug up code, hard to read, use for anyone besides me.
1-revision of sha256crypt was rewritten from scratch. It's much easier
to read and 25% faster than previous.

Results are highly depend on salt and pass length
For example:
Old: 5578 c/s New: 6813 c/s

Old: 10561 c/s New: l3248 c/s

I've added #FULL_UNROLL definition which unrolls completely main
sha256 loop and gives an additional 5% speedup (compilation takes 5
minutes longer).
I need to buy better power supply to test 9800gt, and add multigpu
support in the future, but while I'm unable to achieve much better
perfomance on single gpu it's not a high priority task.
