FIPS 180-4 introduces SHA-512/t support and explicitly SHA-512/256.
Note this is NOT a simple truncation of SHA-512 since when using
SHA-512/t the initial value H(0) is different.
See sections 126.96.36.199 and 6.7.
I recommend the checksum value for this be
A / in the value doesn't cause any problems and it is the official NIST
name of that hash.
With the internal enum being: ZIO_CHECKSUM_SHA512_256
CR 7020616 already exists for adding this in Oracle Solaris.
