RFP: xxhash - Extremely fast hash algorithm

Jari Aalto-5
The new rsync would benefit from the xxhash package, if someone had
free time to package it:

  https://packages.debian.org/unstable/xxhash

  Extremely fast hash algorithm

  xxHash is an Extremely fast Hash algorithm, running at RAM speed
  limits. It successfully completes the SMHasher test suite which
  evaluates collision, dispersion and randomness qualities of hash
  functions. Code is highly portable, and hashes are identical on all
  platforms (little / big endian).

Doug offered to package it
