Yes, thanks!

Maybe you are not aware that you can use --format=opencl which will do 
just that. You can also use --format=cuda or do both with --format=gpu. 
You can even use a wildcard, as in --format=wpapsk* for testing all 
variants of that format, or --format=*crypt for all formats that ends in

I'd much appreciate a benchmark before/after trying this change: In 
src/opencl/ (and many others, but lets try this first), 
we have this:

	#if gpu_amd(DEVICE_INFO)

If you delete the #if and #endif so we define it for nvidia too, does it 
affect performance significantly? Note that after editing, you need to 
run "make" to have the change "activated" even though the kernel is 
built at run-time.
