The version Claudio posted now adds Cisco support to existing raw-sha256-opencl source file, so only a few functions differs and there are two format structs. While it is technically a separate format, it's not a new source file (and I presume it uses the same OpenCL kernel too).

That was easy, using prepare().

I just added (in bleeding) support for native Cisco type 4 hashes (tagged or not) to the existing raw-sha256 format. The .pot entries are compatible with normal, hex-encoded, raw-sha256 hashes.

We should do the same to OpenCL and ditch the (semi-)separate format.
