john will skip hashes which have already been cracked by previous
passwords, because, usually, it doesn't make sense whether or not
another password will produce same hash.

If, for some reason, all the hashes for a particular salt got cracked,
it doesn't make sense to compute hashes for new passwords for this
particular salt - because there is no more uncracked hash for this salt.
