Subject: Inconsistent dragonfly 3/4 format names intended?

I noticed a minor inconsistency in the naming of dragonfly formats:

$ grep -n "#define FORMAT_NAME" dragonfly?_fmt.c|cut -b 1-20,46-
dragonfly3_fmt.c:32:"DragonFly BSD $3$ SHA-256 w/ bug, 32-bit"
dragonfly3_fmt.c:33:"DragonFly BSD $3$ SHA-256 w/ bug, 64-bit"
dragonfly4_fmt.c:32:"DragonFly BSD $4$ SHA-512 w/ bugs, 32-bit"
dragonfly4_fmt.c:33:"DragonFly BSD $4$ SHA-512 w/ bugs, 64-bit"

Unless it is intentional to use "w/ bugs" for dragonfly4 and "w/ bug"
for dragonfly3, this should be unified, unless the dragonfly3 algorithm
really has just one bug, and dragonfly4 algorithm more than one.

Since I don't really know whether the difference is intended, or what
magnum prefers, I'll not attach such a trivial patch.
(But I would vote for the shorter name.)
