This may be OK, although in other GPU formats we set FORMAT_NAME to an
empty string, like:


#define FORMAT_LABEL            "phpass-opencl"
#define FORMAT_NAME             ""

#define ALGORITHM_NAME          "MD5 OpenCL"

and as you can see, we also put the underlying crypto primitive name
into ALGORITHM_NAME before " OpenCL" or " CUDA".  The latter doesn't
make that much sense for Lyra2, where performance is primarily affected
by its high-level structure.

So maybe:

#define FORMAT_LABEL            "Lyra2-cuda"
#define FORMAT_NAME             ""
#define ALGORITHM_NAME          "CUDA"

And for CPU implementations, you'd include bits used/bits total, SIMD
instruction set used, and the interleaving factor in ALGORITHM_NAME.
