// In this package, the CRC polynomial is represented in reversed notation,
// or LSB-first representation.
// LSB-first representation is a hexadecimal number with n bits, in which the
// most significant bit represents the coefficient of x⁰ and the least significant
// bit represents the coefficient of xⁿ⁻¹ (the coefficient for xⁿ is implicit).
// For example, CRC32-Q, as defined by the following polynomial,
// x³²+ x³¹+ x²⁴+ x²²+ x¹⁶+ x¹⁴+ x⁸+ x⁷+ x⁵+ x³+ x¹+ x⁰
// has the reversed notation 0b11010101100000101000001010000001, so the value
// that should be passed to MakeTable is 0xD5828281.
