New submission from Lukas Lueg <knabberknusperhaus at yahoo.de>:

Here is the follow-up to issue #4818. The patches attached allow the
built-in SHA modules to release the GIL.

Also the build-in SHA modules will now no longer accept "s#" as input.
Input is parsed just as in the openssl-driven classes where
unicode-objects are explicitly rejected.

The built-in hash modules have been not quite beautiful before even more
code is now copy & pasted between them. Is there any interest in
refactoring all those modules? AFAIK _sha1 and such are only used by
hashlib.py ...
