Well you could use -gpu as a prefix. And actually, CUDA formats could
use that prefix too except where they clash (currently crypt-md5 and
phpass).

So an OpenCL build would have ssha-gpu, raw-md5-gpu, nt-gpu,
raw-sha1-gpu, cryptmd5-gpu, phpass-gpu and mysql-sha1-gpu.

A CUDA build would have cryptmd5-gpu, phpass-gpu, cryptsha256-gpu,
cryptsha512-gpu, mscash-gpu, mscash2-gpu, rawsha256-gpu and rawsha224-gpu.

A GPU build (ie. both) would have ssha-gpu, raw-md5-gpu, nt-gpu,
raw-sha1-gpu, cryptmd5-gpu, cryptmd5-cuda, phpass-gpu, phpass-cuda,
mysql-sha1-gpu, cryptsha256-gpu, cryptsha512-gpu, mscash-gpu,
mscash2-gpu, rawsha256-gpu and rawsha224-gpu.

Maybe that would be confusing? But in some ways it would be less
confusing - the user only cares about using GPU, she won't care if it's
CUDA or OpenCL under the hood.

Just thinking out loud here.
