It actually takes like 3.5 hours vs CUDA's 26 seconds. Something is not

form=xsha512-cuda                 guesses: 1468 time: 0:00:00:13  [PASSED]
.pot CHK:xsha512-cuda             guesses: 1468 time: 0:00:00:13  [PASSED]

form=xsha512-opencl               guesses: 1050 time: 0:01:47:10  [PASSED]

The .pot file check will likely take 1:47 also, so totalling 3:34.

However, I now removed the "unreliable" tag for that format too.
