Is there any reason why DES won't use more than two processors in multiprocessor
machines.  I have a quad processor and it insists on doing two rc5 blocks and
two des blocks.  If I put the rc5 buffers to 0:0 it still just does two DES
blocks.  I would think in a time critical application such as this, a
significant gain would be had by allowing DES to use all four processors.  Right
now my DES key rate is effectively cut in half.
