Hi Martin,

I double checked performance with our micro benchmark.
This change was 5 times faster. In addition, I did not observe degradation
with smaller length but have almost equal performance.

Best regards,

I have implemented a more generic version of the vector instruction based
CRC code.
It supports CRC32C and Big Endian, too.

The peak performance was even better for large input streams. I got almost
Some smaller length may be slower than with the old version.
Maybe somebody from IBM would like to double-check performance.

Please review:
(hoping you like math J)

Best regards,
