This allows ./john --wordlist --mask to be specified but not ./john --mask
--wordlist probably because FLG_CRACKING_CHK is present in FLG_MASK_SET and
in flg_clr of
0, 0, OPT_FMT_STR_ALLOC, &options.wordlist},

One thing I could do is remove FLG_CRACKING_CHK from FLG_MASK_SET, then it
would allow both combination.

Also mask mode needs to be higher in if-else ladder in john.c
