lib: crc8: add new library module providing crc8 algorithm
The brcm80211 driver in staging tree uses a crc8 function. Based on feedback from John Linville to move this to lib directory, the linux source has been searched. Although there is currently only one other kernel driver using this algorithm (ie. drivers/ssb) we are providing this as a library function for others to use.
