This is a bit puzzling. Does your platform support
cl_khr_byte_addressable_store  extension (run CLInfo?). Even in case
of no support, the patch should have aborted with compilation
failures. It would be interesting to enable debugging (add -g to JtR's
Makefile), rebuild  and run JtR under gdb to get a backtrace.

My patches require support for cl_khr_byte_addressable_store to be
present in your OpenCL implementation (ATI 48XX series don't have that
extension AFAIK). A compile time option could be added to enable
alternate code which works for 48xx series but I am not 100% sure if
"it is worth it?" at this time. Thanks for compiling and running the
patches. :-)
