Subject[RFC] lib: crc8: add new library module providing crc8 algorithm
Date
The brcm80211 driver in staging tree uses a crc8 function. Based on
feedback from John Linville to move this to lib directory, the linux
source has been searched. Although there is currently only one other
kernel driver using this algorithm (ie. drivers/ssb) we are providing
this as a library function for others to use.

V1:
- functionality taken from brcm80211 utility function as is.
- documented the crc8 header file using kernel-doc syntax.
- compilation verified in-kernel and as module for x86, x86_64, arm, and mips.
