NAK.

Btrfs' code base has seen way too many instances of people dumping code
"in anticipation of feature X", only to result in said feature never
materializing. The end result is cruft being added. When/if someones
decides to add a new checksum algo they will have to account for the
existing crc32c and come up with appropriate abstraction. Until (if at
all) that time comes - we don't need any of the hash.[ch] stuff.
