But of course! If you like you can send me a rar kernel I can get hints
from, as a courtesy ;-)  Doesn't need to be complete runnable code, just
a kernel. I think my key stretching loop is the bottleneck.

I'm thinking I won't gain too much from doing more on GPU. My priority
now (apart from more GPU speed) is splitting workload so each kernel run
is 200 ms or so. Another possibility is firing off one batch on GPU and
while that is running, compare the last and prepare the next.
