Chances are that it exposed the bugs you already had. ;-)  This is how I
found the two out of bounds writes that I mentioned.

Can you submit a patch for that, for all formats that use the wrong
wording (not only yours)?

Sure.  My comments about sse-intrinsics.c was for the CPU-only format.

For overlapping CPU and GPU portions of code in WPA-PSK and MSCash2
formats, my planned support for multiple key blocks should help (that's
a formats interface enhancement).
