Actually, given that GPU formats tend to use high max_keys_per_crypt,
this naive approach may be OK for early experiments.  It will only cause
substantial slowdown when the number of loaded hashes is significantly
larger than the number of hashes computed per crypt_all() call, since
you only need to do this scanning once per call.

For actual/"final" implementation, we'll need to do something better,
like the salt id thing I mentioned.
