Hi Florian,

The performance gain that I reported was over the earlier implementation of GHASH using clmul instructions (generate_ghash_process_blocks).

Performance improvement against what?  The pure Java implementation?  I find this a bit surprising.  I would have expected a much larger performance improvement from the use of CLMUL instructions.
