DOMINOSEC_fmt_plug.c has highly non-optimal code with tiny loops where changes in just one generated instruction can significantly affect overall performance. It could benefit from changes similar to those I recently made to lotus5_fmt_plug.c. Both of these are also candidates for bitslicing (but we'd need to generate a "circuit" for the custom S-box) or for uses of PSHUB/VPPERM. It's curious to know that clang did better than gcc for you on this code nevertheless. Alexander
