Why do you #include "sha2.h" and how is this going to work in the -fixes

The CUDA and OpenCL implementations are now inconsistent in where the
comparisons are done.

Did you do your speed testing on your cards only or also on bull's?
I think there may be a bit more of a difference (maybe 1% or so?) with
the faster GPUs.

I think you could transfer e.g. 64-bit partial hashes to CPU only, and
when these match, do a full recomputation and comparison in cmp_exact()
(on CPU).  But this is beyond what's acceptable for the -fixes branch
now.  Also, you're right that polishing this format (beyond making it
work, which we did) is not a priority right now.
