Cool.  Thanks!

Yes, can you show benchmarks before/after the addition of ternary logic
instructions?  And, did you fully make use of them (turning all of the
3-input basic functions of MD4/MD5/SHA-1/SHA-2 into single instructions)
or only to define vcmov() for now?  You should do both, so that we also
have vcmov() available for use where it's sufficient (e.g., MD5's F and
G) and in possible future code where we might not introduce proper
ternary logic expressions right away.

You mean the program's interactive response time, not the c/s rates.
The c/s rates suggest there's pure emulation with no JIT.  But that's
fine for our purposes.
