Subject: Re: mschap-v2 conversion

I have updated the patch with changes (except SSE). It now builds for openmp. I have tested on my system, everything works fine. But you should also test for correctness. The patch is attached.

>OK, that seems to work. But as long as it breaks the normal builds, I can't commit it. Could you try to get it work for at least linux-x86-sse2?

yaa I have to do it and I want to take it up. Since I am new to SSE programming, I don't exactly know how to work with it but I will try (ofcourse with your help :) )

good, the changes seems to work  :)

>I think you should change ALGORITHM_NAME to reflect that we are using BS. Maybe you could just use DES_BS_ALGORITHM_NAME?

Ok I will do it.

>BTW, I get these warnings:

They are due to signed variables and unused temp variable in the code, i will handle them.

>A more serious problem is that you break OMP builds even for generic:

yaa I actually didn't do it.  Just wanted to make everything work for simplest case but I will do it now.
