Maybe I was wrong. There are 2 reasons:

1. I want to bypass this function, since the AFL documentation declares that
"As with any other brute-force tool, the fuzzer offers limited coverage if
encryption, checksums, cryptographic signatures, or compression are used
to wholly wrap the actual data format to be tested.".

2. This function occupies most of time. I want to make it start faster, so I
comment this function.
