I have a quick and dirty implementation, storing the entire 512 KB table
per salt.  (This can be lowered by storing partial DES blocks - still
sufficient to reject most password candidates.)

I'll post benchmarks and patch shortly.

I tried this too, the speed was way too low.  We'd need to increase
MAX_KEYS_PER_CRYPT a lot in order to go with this approach, and that
will have performance impact on its own (keys not fitting in caches).
