Megha,

Sorry for breaking it.  I completely missed the fact that the function
calls sha1_x8_avx2() which clobbers registers.

If the performance penalty isn't too bad, I'll submit a patch to
standardize sha1_x8_avx2() to follow the C ABI.

Do you have any tips for testing this code?  I've tried using the tcrypt
module, but no luck.
