Also is it necessary to run the bf-opencl on CPU? We might need a > little modified kernel for that. Some people have 96 cores or more, and OpenCL might scale better than OMP (not sure about this case though). I would like all OpenCL formats to at least run on CPU, and ideally they should even be somewhat optimized for CPU - at least in terms of picking work group sizes. The RAR format tries to do this. You can use eg. #ifdef DEVICE_IS_CPU in kernel, and some of the plenty of helper functions from common-opencl.c in host code. And you could pick LWS/GWS depending on device (and/or number of cores) - or at least get them from john.conf. magnum
