SubjectRe: [patch] Move CRC computation to separate function
When GCing a data node, it may be reencrypted as a means of organizing the
KSA and reducing the number of LEBs that need to be erased. A Long term
keys in one half for stable data, short term in the other. During this
reencryption the CRC is recomputed. Also, after truncating it the last
chunk needs to be reencrypted too, or else the key can be used with the
old version to find the truncated part.

For the misc.h approach, it does not currently include ubifs-media.h, but
that is where UBIFS_CRC32_INIT is defined, so move it also to misc.h
