comment Finding partial pre-image of MD5 hash
Short answer: No, there isn't. So use brute-force. But if you use a GPU it'll just take a few seconds to find such an $X$.

comment Can you use the same key to provide a signature and a MAC?
What exactly do you mean by a signature? And you should specify the exact schemes you want to use. With common terminology a signature uses asymmetric crypto, a MAC symmetric. So you need different kinds of keys for that.

comment Can ElGamal encryption and ElGamal signatures be used together sharing the same key-pairs?
Can you store a single seed in the device from which you derive the two actual private keys with a KDF? That way you get a single small private key. But obviously it doubles the size of the public key.

I can't find anything about joint security of elgamal. Some related but not entirely fitting papers: google.com/?q=%22joint+security%22+signature
