Grepping through the src and doc directories, I think I know how this
could work.
I can test if john supports --platform=LIST, if yes, add --platform= to
the possible completions for options, and the reported list for
completion of possible values.

Similar, for --device=LIST, check whether the option is supported, and
use the listed values as possible completions.

I think I don't need to support the older --gpu option.
