 crc16 algorithm copied from Linux sources (GPL V2 only!)
So far the wireshark sources are v2 or later - so adding a gplv2 only file
is not something that should be done without asking *first*, because it
has effects for all of Wireshark. Or maybe there already were files that
are v2 only and I missed that?
I had in mind that we already have GPL V2 only files in Wireshark 
before, but I may be wrong here.

I can remove the two "GPL V2 only" files, as this is "only" a CRC16 expert check here. That is the CCITT implementation of CRC16 which is not already existing in Wireshark AFAIK. Having the CCITT CRC16 in Wireshark would be probably a good idea anyway.
Some time ago when I actually implemented the stuff I couldn't find a 
GPL V2 or later implementation.
Question is: How to continue?
