Pure Elixir implementation of Fowler–Noll–Vo hash functions

Fowler–Noll–Vo is a non-cryptographic hash function created by Glenn Fowler, Landon Curt Noll, and Phong Vo.

The basis of the FNV hash algorithm was taken from an idea sent as reviewer comments to the IEEE POSIX P1003.2 committee by Glenn Fowler and Phong Vo in 1991. In a subsequent ballot round, Landon Curt Noll improved on their algorithm. Some people tried this hash and found that it worked rather well. In an email message to Landon, they named it the Fowler/Noll/Vo or FNV hash.
