  Description     : Fast hashing using pure Go implementation of BLAKE2b
with SIMD instructions

BLAKE2b-SIMD Pure Go implementation of BLAKE2b using SIMD
optimizations.  Introduction This package was initially based
on the pure go BLAKE2b (https://github.com/dchest/blake2b)
implementation of Dmitry Chestnykh and merged with the (cgo
dependent) AVX optimized BLAKE2 (https://github.com/codahale/blake2)
implementation (which in turn is based on the official implementation
(https://github.com/BLAKE2/BLAKE2). It does so by using Go's Assembler
(https://golang.org/doc/asm) for amd64 architectures with a golang only
fallback for other architectures.

golang-github-minio-blake2b-simd is a dependency of go-ipfs, which is to
be packaged [1]
