Oh, this must be it.  rdi for the argument was my first thought, but I
wrongly recalled that all of these functions use it.  I just took a
look, and the asm version of DES_bs_crypt_25 does not actually use its
argument (even though it's called with one, since the C implementation
sometimes uses it).  So this is why descrypt and tripcode passed test.

midipix may try that.
