Great, so we don't seem to need any kernel changes for that. But sooner 
or later we'll find Maxwell-specific optimizations.

So using current code, GTX970 is basically on par with HD7970 which 
means GTX980 is on par with R9 290X. Hashcat forums tell the same story.

All three of those currently have transfer bottlenecks, so this was 
probably coincidental.

Thank you for testing this!
