Detailed Description

Fibonacci Linear Feedback Shift Register using specified polynomial mask.

Generates a maximal length pseudo-random sequence of length 2^degree-1

Constructor: digital::lfsr(int mask, int seed, int reg_len);

Parameters
mask- polynomial coefficients representing the locations of feedback taps from a shift register which are xor'ed together to form the new high order bit.

Some common masks might be: x^4 + x^3 + x^0 = 0x19 x^5 + x^3 + x^0 = 0x29 x^6 + x^5 + x^0 = 0x61

Parameters
seed- the initialization vector placed into the register during initialization. Low order bit corresponds to x^0 coefficient – the first to be shifted as output.
reg_len- specifies the length of the feedback shift register to be used. During each iteration, the register is rightshifted one and the new bit is placed in bit reg_len. reg_len should generally be at least order(mask) + 1

see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_feedback_shift_register for more explanation.

next_bit() - Standard LFSR operation

Perform one cycle of the LFSR.  The output bit is taken from
the shift register LSB.  The shift register MSB is assigned from
the modulo 2 sum of the masked shift register.

next_bit_scramble(unsigned char input) - Scramble an input stream

Perform one cycle of the LFSR.  The output bit is taken from
the shift register LSB.  The shift register MSB is assigned from
the modulo 2 sum of the masked shift register and the input LSB.

next_bit_descramble(unsigned char input) - Descramble an input stream

Perform one cycle of the LFSR.  The output bit is taken from
the modulo 2 sum of the masked shift register and the input LSB.
The shift register MSB is assigned from the LSB of the input.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrambler for operation of these last two functions (see multiplicative scrambler.)
