On GTX580, Before:
Benchmarking: Mac OS X 10.7+ salted SHA-512 [CUDA]... DONE
Many salts:     70254K c/s real, 70964K c/s virtual
Only one salt:  27262K c/s real, 27262K c/s virtual

Benchmarking: Mac OS X 10.7+ salted SHA-512 [CUDA]... DONE
Many salts: 72673K c/s real, 72673K c/s virtual
Only one salt: 27439K c/s real, 27698K c/s virtual

Enlarge either MAX_KEYS_PER_CRYPT or BLOCK size will reduce the
performance. I think it is a lot of data transfer that takes time.
