Why is that? Can you fix it? You're actively polling the Epiphany chip for results, thereby wasting one ARM core. Are there good alternatives to this polling approach? If polling is to stay, we could consider inter-mixing it with computation on the ARM core... although it's tricky to do well, especially given that one crypt_all() call should compute a whole number of bcrypt's (we could have to increase max_keys_per_crypt substantially, but this has undesirable side-effects on usability).
