[riot-users] Simple hashing function

Hey Joakim,
There is already a collection of hashing implementations in
Unfortunally all of them yield 32 bit integers. I did however also used the
CPU ID and djb2_hash() in [1] to initialize an IEEE 802.15.4 device's
EUI-64 - which is the link-layer pendent to the IPv6 host suffix [2] - by
spliting the CPU ID in half, generating a 32-bit hash from each half and
splicing them together again as a 64-bit number.

Best regards,
