You're welcome :)

Chris, these all seem entirely reasonable suggestions. Certainly, it
would seem to make sense to factor out the 32-bit CRC functions so that
you can run them on an arbitrary buffer.

But, as with all new utility functions, they're going to get added as and when
they're needed. I'm not going to do it, because I don't need them and
don't have anything to test them against. If you want the functionality,
I suggest you submit a patch :)
