The temporary W[] array is currently zeroed out once every call to
sha256_transform(), i.e. once every 64 bytes of input data. Moving it to
sha256_update() instead so that it is cleared only once per update can
save about 2-3% of the total time taken to compute the digest, with a
reasonable memset() implementation, and considerably more (~20%) with a
bad one (eg the x86 purgatory currently uses a memset() coded in C).
