Subject: Re: Recent github patches

New stuff (some already mentioned in other threads):

* New SHA-1 intrinsics (by JimF) with smaller memory footprint (16x4
buffer instad of 80x4), for a 5-15% boost in many formats. New pre-built

* The 32-bit sse2 builds are now using intrinsics where sensible. Now,
sse2i just means "pre-built intrinsics" just like the 64-bit builds. The
32-bit builds can selectively fall-back to asm for MD4/MD5/SHA-1 (it
currently does for SHA-1 unless using OpenMP as that's still faster even
when using icc).

* OpenCL patches merged (no CUDA yet)

* HDAA got OMP support (intrinsics in progress)

* Crypt-SHA added ($5$, $6$ - Ulrich Drepper's version used by eg. many
Linux distros).

* DragonFly BSD 2.10.1 SHA-2 ($3$ and $4$) added.

Plus a bunch of minor bugfixes and tweaks, some preparing for next core

Based on 1.7.9-Jumbo-5:

Based on latest core CVS:
