CRC32c INTEL hardware acceleration

modulename: crc32c-intel.ko


Linux Kernel Configuration
└─>Cryptographic API
└─>CRC32c INTEL hardware acceleration
In linux kernel since version 2.6.28 (release Date: 2008-12-24)  
In Intel processor with SSE4.2 supported, the processor will
support CRC32C implementation using hardware accelerated CRC32
instruction. This option will create 'crc32c-intel' module,
which will enable any routine to use the CRC32 instruction to
gain performance compared with software implementation.
Module will be crc32c-intel.
