config CRC32_SLICEBY8
bool "Slice by 8 bytes"
help
Calculate checksum 8 bytes at a time with a clever slicing algorithm.
This is the fastest algorithm, but comes with a 8KiB lookup table.
Most modern processors have enough cache to hold this table without
thrashing the cache.
This is the default implementation choice. Choose this one unless
you have a good reason not to.
config CRC32_SLICEBY4
bool "Slice by 4 bytes"
help
Calculate checksum 4 bytes at a time with a clever slicing algorithm.
This is a bit slower than slice by 8, but has a smaller 4KiB lookup
table.
Only choose this option if you know what you are doing.
config CRC32_SARWATE
bool "Sarwate's Algorithm (one byte at a time)"
help
Calculate checksum a byte at a time using Sarwate's algorithm. This
is not particularly fast, but has a small 256 byte lookup table.
Only choose this option if you know what you are doing.
config CRC32_BIT
bool "Classic Algorithm (one bit at a time)"
help
Calculate checksum one bit at a time. This is VERY slow, but has
no lookup table. This is provided as a debugging option.
Only choose this option if you are debugging crc32.
