x32 is the latest hype and a lot of work has recently been put into 
toolchain, kernel and debugger support.
this is probably a good opportunity to get the attention of early adopters.

which test results are you referring to ?

for my part, i think simple DES crypt() in the libc is sufficient.
busybox 1.20+ ships with a decent set of hash algos to use for login, so 
the libc crypt code isnt used anyway.
