Thanks for doing it.

The *_hash_6() functions in john-1.7.9-jumbo-5-opencl-4.1.diff are
incorrect.  The masks should be 0x7ffffff (27 bits), not 0xfffffff
(28 bits).  The rest are OK (for smaller hash tables).

Please correct this.  Also, I think you don't actually need minor
version numbers on updates to these patches - e.g., I think you should
have used -5 instead of -4-final, then -6 instead of -4.1, etc.
So instead of -4.2, just use -5 now.
