A possibly simpler and possibly better option, especially given the
approach you've taken so far, may be to put a size-optimized
implementation of entire bcrypt on Epiphany.  Here is a revision of
crypt_blowfish that we made for musl libc:

IIRC, it's under 8 KB of code on x86.

musl itself (including the crypt_blowfish revision in it) may be
downloaded here:

I think you'll need to implement both approaches and compare the
resulting performance eventually, but you may start with either.
