I coded this for fun, based on Lyra2's modified version of Blake2b.  I'm
not confident it's secure, but it does run fast.  It hashes files almost
3.5 GB/s, or just over 1 byte per clock.  Here's some speed comparisons:

wghash (as I'm calling this hack): 3.48 GB/s
md5sum: 0.72 GB/s
sha256sum: 0.29 GB/s

It's almost 5X faster than md5sum, and 12X faster than sha256sum.  It would
be very cool of something like this works out.
