As I wrote in the original thread on pwsafe, before I saw your posting above:

Brian - basically, individual kernel invocations should be taking no
more than 200ms, preferably much less.  This means that with a large
GWS, you need to be computing only a fraction of the 2048 iterations per
kernel invocation.  Please store intermediate results in global memory.

Some examples:

fgrep HASH_LOOPS opencl_*.c opencl/*
