Certainly V7 UNIX at the end of the 70s used salting.

Even the spate of 16-bit processors that came out in the mid to late 70s, the Z-8001/2, the 8086, the 68000, and few others, never mind the ones from the early 80s like the 16016 and 32032, with or without custom memory management and access control hardware, some of which I used and others I evaluated, following the new licensing conditions and of course "XENIX", all had salt since they were all V7 derived. (or at least all the ones I looked at.) Yes, by today's standards they were under powered. Some of them claimed to be as powerful as a PDP-11, if you pick the right PDP-11 and the right fragment of code ... but ...
