For your system, you can find the speed by compiling/running attached
program. For bcc, new code is 2.5-3 times slower than version I use for
comparison. I think there's only one optimization to be made. You call
crc_lookup inside checksumming loop, and that is slow. It is easy to change by
- making a routine get_crc_table which instread of table entry will return
table itself
- adding member "table" to crc_fast
- assigning that member from call to get_crc_table in ctor.

After that change is made, code works within 25% of reference implementation'
speed and much closer most of the time.
