The key setup in my code is slower because I never optimized the key
scheduling code. I wasn't out to crack keys, and I figured that it was
better anyway to handle the multiple key case by just creating each
key schedule once and passing the appropriate one to the encrypt and
decrypt routines. That's faster than continually calling even the
fastest key scheduling function...
