Well, the part that we do not really want a special value (at least not
is new, and makes things a bit more complicated.

Yes, iirc the demonstration was with the 64 bit crc instead of the
32-bit (or a bad crc compiler optimization?).
But I do think it can be shown to provide significant speedup
(at least peak burst performance).

Especially on target hardware WAL write IO is extremely fast 
(since it is write cached), so the CPU should show.
