You should write the salt in set_salt(). Doing it in crypt_all() is an 
awful waste unless salt actually changed. Also, you need to drop 
FMT_UTF8 for SIMD until you actually implement an encoding-aware 
set_key(). But neither of these is the reason it fails.

I'm pretty sure you miss a byte-swap when writing the salt but even 
fixing that doesn't make it pass. I can't find the problem right now.

Here's alternative "naive" code for salt-write.

#if 1
			for (k = 0; k < 16; ++k) // copy the salt to the vector buffer
				((unsigned char*)saved_key)[GETPOS(k, (index+j))] = ((unsigned 
			for (k = 0; k < 4; ++k) // copy the salt to the vector buffer
				in[(j&(SIMD_COEF_32-1)) + j/SIMD_COEF_32*SHA_BUF_SIZ*SIMD_COEF_32 + 
k*SIMD_COEF_32] = ((uint32_t*)cur_salt->esalt)[k];
