In ALGORITHM_NAME, I included the number of CPU word bits that the particular implementation (algorithm) of the hashing method makes efficient use of, out of the total word size. For example, "32/64" means that the algorithm (such as a straightforward implementation of MD5) makes use of only 32 bits out of 64 (on a 64-bit machine), whereas "128/128 BS SSE2" (such as for a bitslice implementation of DES on SSE2) means that the algorithm makes use of 128 out of 128 bits (in SIMD vectors in this case). ;-) I started using this notation prior to inclusion of bitslice DES in JtR, so you could see things such as 24/32 and 48/64 for non-bitslice DES implementations (you still do for Kerberos AFS, which I did not care to move to the bitslice code).
