I've just explained how you can do it in another message (a lengthy
one).  No, you don't have to add a bench_set_salts().

I just took a look.  You haven't yet implemented the keys_changed trick
that I had proposed - you're sending the entire set of keys to GPU on
every crypt_all() call, which you don't have to do.  Please implement
this one trick and re-benchmark the thing _before_ you possibly proceed
with the salts optimization (which is a lot more complicated).  We need
to know which of the optimizations made what performance difference.
