Maybe adapt the block size to the maximum password length actually seen in the current block (which may vary from block to block)? That way, the GPU can start processing the candidate passwords in parallel right away (without having to scan the buffer sequentially first, like it would with a more advanced encoding scheme), yet the transfer size is reduced and the maximum supported password length is increased.
