The assembly file patches had a minor bug in them (the same one in both) -
you forgot to switch from .data back to .text, so your SSE2 code was
getting into .data, which is non-executable at least on the Linux/x86-64
system that I used for testing (Owl-current), so John would segfault.

I've fixed this bug (and applied a couple of other minor cleanups as
well - added "#undef a3" to avoid the warning, increased alignments to
cache line size), regenerated the patch with:

TZ=UTC diff -urpN john-1.7.2.orig john-1.7.2-ntlm-alainesp-6.1 > john-1.7.2-ntlm-alainesp-6.1.diff

and released it after some brief testing.  I've also added a news item
on the Openwall website front page.
