I've not looked at these routines :-) but I suspect they do byte or
nibble table lookups.
For CRC16 (hdlc etc) there is a short sequence of shifts and xors
that will update the crc for a new byte.
On superscalar architectures with barrel shifters this is almost
certainly faster than the table lookup versions (even when the
table is in the cache).
IIRC it is 3 clocks slower on non-superscaler with zero wait state memory.
