I wonder about lifting ByteOrder.nativeOrder().  Maybe it fails to
inline because the method is too large: if that happens, we really
lose.  I'm not seeing that, though: it seems to be inlined just fine,
and has no effect.

In any case, this patch doesn't help anything on my test hardware.

CRC.crc    avgt    5  1050.374 ? 1.533  ns/op

CRC.crc    avgt    5  1088.962 ? 0.212  ns/op

And here, for the sake of anyone interested, is the AArch64 code,
