Hi Staffan,

I can see CRC32C.reflect(int) method reverses the bits in 32 bit int 
value. You could use Integer.reverse(int) instead.

The CRC32C.swap32(int) method is (almost) exactly the same as 
Integer.reverseBytes(int) and equivalent.

I wonder if handling ByteBuffer could be simplified. You could leverage 
it's own byte order manipulation by temporarily setting (and resetting 
afterwards) ByteBuffer.order() and then use ByteBuffer.getInt() to 
extract 32 bits at a time for your algorithm. This could get you the 
optimal variant of algorithm for both kinds of buffers (direct or byte[] 
based). Perhaps even the byte[] based variant of algorithm could be 
implemented by wrapping the array with ByteBuffer, passing it to common 
private method, and relying on the escape analysis of Hotspot to 
allocate the HeapByteBuffer wrapper object on stack.

Regards, Peter
