      [CRYPTO] lib: table driven multiplications in GF(2^128) · c494e070
      Rik Snel authored
      A lot of cypher modes need multiplications in GF(2^128). LRW, ABL, GCM...
      I use functions from this library in my LRW implementation and I will
      also use them in my ABL (Arbitrary Block Length, an unencumbered (correct
      me if I am wrong, wide block cipher mode).
      Elements of GF(2^128) must be presented as u128 *, it encourages automatic
      and proper alignment.
      The library contains support for two different representations of GF(2^128),
      see the comment in gf128mul.h. There different levels of optimization
      (memory/speed tradeoff).
      The code is based on work by Dr Brian Gladman. Notable changes:
      - deletion of two optimization modes
      - change from u32 to u64 for faster handling on 64bit machines
      - support for 'bbe' representation in addition to the, already implemented,
        'lle' representation.
      - move 'inline void' functions from header to 'static void' in the
        source file
      - update to use the linux coding style conventions
