Cyclic Redundancy Check.  It is a kind of checksum computed over
polynomials in GF(2), which means it may be implemented in hardware by
a FSR, or feedback shift register.  It is similar to the shift and add
hardware binary multiply algorithm, except that it is shift and
exclusive or.  Software implementations usually usually use a table to
compute several shifts at once, like a hardware single cycle
multiplier used in DSPs (Digital Signal Processors).
