We were looking for faster non-cryptographic hash to be used for the
gfid2path infra 
The initial testing was done with md5 128bit checksum which was a slow,
and using it makes software not complaint to FIPS 
On searching online a bit we found out xxhash  seems to be faster from
the results of
benchmark tests shared and lot of projects use it. So we have decided to us
and added following files to gluster code base with the patch 
BSD 2-Clause License:
GPL v2 License:
NOTE: We have ignored the code guideline check for these files as
further becomes difficult.
Please comment on the same if there are any issues around it.
 Issue: https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/139
