The recently released zlib 1.2.1 (not yet in eCos) has a new CRC32
implementation which is claimed to be about 50% faster than the old

This would possibly be a good argument to at least make it
configurable which one to use. Or maybe even replace the eCos CRC32
implementation with the new one from zlib...
