The parity function is newly introduced in this series and can be more
efficient that just hw_weight() & 1 on certain architectures. Since the
result is the same using it is certainly an improvement. But ...

[...]

... this should still be

if (!parity32(tx))
tx |= ADXRS450_P;

Otherwise it's a bit too much obfuscated for my taste. Just leave it to the
compiler to optimize it as it sees it fit.
