This has several good consequences: It makes Single mode work less bad (min_keys_per_crypt can be set to local worksize) and it speeds up self-test - often a lot! For example, Office 2007 benchmark took 1:45 before this patch, and just 25 seconds now.

Actually, I set it to MAX(local_work_size, 8) because some CPU drivers will use a local_work_size of 1 and we don't want it that low.
On AMD LWS=1 is a nice choice for slow hashes. I will try this again and 


Everything seems fine. These improvements seem a to be a must have in 
all formats!
