Now I finally run through all the self-tests, using JtR linked with OpenSSL on MIC. All formats pass self-tests except for dominosec8, which just segfaults. ( <>)

Yet there're still something wrong in dynamic formats. Some formats would fail with SIMD_PARA_MD4 bigger than 1. Potentially more issues would arise with other combination of interleaving factors. ( <>)

Anyway I think it's safe to use the latest OpenSSL with JtR on MIC now. I've updated the instructions on building either OpenSSL or LibreSSL for MIC.
