Hey guys OpenMP done !

If the spin box is set as "default" (which is also the default value of the
spin box), it's not gonna set OMP_NUM_THREAD variable and john will select
it based on the number of processors. Otherwise, it's gonna set it to the
specified number in the process environnement like Shinnok said. See
screenshot below
