I think it'd be helpful to have
john-1.7.5-fullmpi-8-after-jumbo2.diff.gz updated to apply after
1.7.6-jumbo-3.  In fact, I'd like to see it in a form suitable for
merging into the jumbo patch - that is, with proper #ifdef's to allow
for both non-MPI and MPI-enabled builds from the same source tree.

My current approach is to merge almost everything that was contributed
into the jumbo patch.  BTW, john-1.7.5-jumbo-3-md5intrinsics.diff.gz is
also a candidate for merging in (with some changes).

The OpenMP support is currently very limited - it is working for "slow"
hash types only, although it works really well for those.  I intend to
extend it (or another approach) onto more hash types, but we are not
there yet.
