Thank you!

Here's what I am getting on 2xE5420:

Benchmarking: SHA-crypt-256 [OpenSSL 32/64]... (8xOMP) DONE
Many salts:     1756 c/s real, 219 c/s virtual
Only one salt:  1756 c/s real, 219 c/s virtual

Benchmarking: SHA-crypt-512 [OpenSSL 64/64]... (8xOMP) DONE
Many salts:     2112 c/s real, 262 c/s virtual
Only one salt:  2092 c/s real, 262 c/s virtual

I guess we should set BENCHMARK_LENGTH to -1 such that we only get one
"Raw" line.  Key setup takes a negligible portion of time for slow
hashes like this.

BTW, I notice that you use #include "omp.h" in your new source files,
whereas the rest of JtR uses #include <omp.h> - I suggest that you use
the latter (only look for omp.h in system directories).
