I was/am going to install whatever is latest, but not right now as I
have no time to deal with possible side-effects or perform a downgrade
in the following couple of weeks.  So let's revisit this in 2+ weeks
from now.

The hashcat website says 131k c/s, and it did for a while (not a recent
change).  Milen mentioned getting 137k with hashkill in a tweet a while
ago.  All of these are for HD 7970 at stock clocks.

IIRC, it did 55k when built with OpenMP.  Still relatively slow, of course.

I hope someone else will answer this better, but we can try chattr +a on
a directory (needs root privs) or LD_PRELOAD'ing a library with dummy
unlink() (can be done as non-root) if nothing else helps.
