I tried profiling without OMP (this will likely show the reason for poor
scaling), but it segfaults. Did you try non-OMP after adding OMP
support? I won't look further unless you say it's works fine for you.

Please do not commit the OMP_FLAGS change in Makefile, I have reverted
it once before. I reverted it again now together with some trivial
stderr changes in mozilla2john - I forgot about the changed syntax and
did not see the error until I looked into the resulting file :)

By the way, when pulling with local uncommitted changes, please use "git
pull --rebase" for avoiding unnecessary merges like 11e1a23.
