Subject: Meaning one salt in benchmark

Hi, all

I am trying to understand many salts and one salt in benchmark output.
>From benchmark_format(), I can easily imagine how many salts work:
when we crack many hashes with different salts, we first call
max_keys_per_crypt number of set_key()s and next we set different
salts, do crypt_all() and do cmp_all() on hashes with same salt.

But I cannot imagine why there is one salt case. What does the one
salt mean? I noticed it is very similar with the "raw" case. Does it
mean that all hashes have the same salt?
