Subject: Use a different format name for raw-sha1-ng, because of max. pw len
 15 instead of 55

To let relbench compare an implementation which supports a maximum
password length of 15 with one that supports a maximum password length
of 55 would IMHO not be correct.
That's why, make sure raw-sha1-ng uses a different format name.

ALexander wanted all different implementations of one algorithm to use
different format names - at least for implementations with different
features (like different maximum password length supported) I agree,

With this patch, raw-sha1-ng uses "Raw SHA-1 (pwlen <= 15)" instead of
"Raw SHA-1".
