    sys/sys              systm.h 
  Refactor the CRC-32 code to enhance its usability. Move the actual
  CRC logic to a new function: crc32_raw() that obtains the initial
  CRC value as well as leaves any post-processing to the caller. As
  such, it can be used when the initial CRC value is not ~0U or when
  the final CRC value does need to be inverted (bitwise). It also
  means that crc32_raw() can be called repeatedly when the data is
  not available as a single block, such as for scatter/gather lists
  and the likes.
  Avoid the additional call overhead incured by the refactoring by
  moving the implementation off crc32() to sys/systm.h and making it
  inlinable. Since crc32_raw() is itself trivial and since it may
  be used in loops that iterate over fragments, having it available
  for inlining can be beneficial. Hence, move its implementation
  to sys/systm.h as well.
  Keep the original implementation of crc32() in libkern/crc32.c for
  documentation purposes (as a comment of course).
