Subject: raw-sha1-opencl patch 1

attached here patch 1 for raw-sha1 with many improvements:
- added fix for nvidia cl compiler now it should work on both ati and 
  nvidia (not tested on nvidia atm)
- fixed some faulty loops of previous version due to my 
  misunderstanding of crypt_all() and cmp_all() calls
- moved prepare of sha1 msg from cpu to GPU saving some data transfer

what still need to do:
- some more optimization of both cl and C code
- add md5 cl hack to pass 1/4 (in sha1 case 1/5) of the hash back to jtr
  and send the whole hash only for cmp_one

how to add to jtr:
add the patch to a vanilla jtr 1.7.6 *after* adding jumbo-9-patch and
opencl-9 patch .

I took a sample dictionary file and encoded sha1 twice with a simple
python program:

import sys
import hashlib

fp = file(sys.argv[1],'r')
fw = file(sys.argv[2],'w')
for line in fp.readlines():
        x= hashlib.sha1()
        y= hashlib.sha1()
        #print "%s"%line.strip()
        yy = y.hexdigest()


this to make an "unbreakable" hashfile to test with

so still 6 times slower than raw sha1 cpu version but..
gpu wasn't used very much: i could still see my desktop with no load at
all, when i benchmark pyrit my gpu hangs for some seconds .

i've tried changing SHA_BLOCK - which is the fixed size i send to the
gpu for each password - from 16 to 64 . performance decreased by 20% no
more so it's no more a matter of low work_size and data exchange.

Cl code can be optimized, for example the prepare_msg routine 
is ugly, some Opencl reading could help a bit.


While various networks have become deeply rooted, and thoughts have been
sent out as light and electrons in a singular direction, this era has
yet to digitize/computerize to the degree necessary for individuals to
become a singular complex entity.
