I do not see a reason to ever do more than once ECB block.  Use cases
for ECB are very limited and the use multi-block ECB is a strong
indication of a severe cryptographic flaw.  Thus your parallelized ECB
mode would only blow up the code.

I applied all your other patches to master.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
