This looks like a bug (in algorithm name reporting) - can you look into
this and fix it?  (Yes, the bug is probably mine.)

This will (correctly) say MMX even in SSE2 builds, because the
non-bitslice DES implementation that this uses can't use wider than
64-bit words anyway (so it does in fact use no better than MMX).

This suggests that the output for dynamic formats is in fact erroneous.
