For plugins/profinet/crc16.[ch], why don't we generate a new module? It looks
like there are several generators available that output GPL-compatible code, e.g.

    http://www.tty1.net/pycrc/pycrc.html
    http://mcgougan.se/universal_crc/
    http://crcmod.sourceforge.net/

Pycrc appears to be the most friendly since you can pass it a model name, e.g.
"pycrc.py --model ccitt" and it includes a list of parameters in the generated code.

Also, it might be useful to have all of the CRC code in one place, such as
epan/crc/. It would be _really_ useful if each of our CRC modules listed their
corresponding parameters.
