Interesting.  I agree that that looks like a case where it would be desirable for a >> -n to do a << n.

By the way, I don't think your formula is quite correct:  your crc is going to grow unboundedly as extra data bytes come in.  I suspect that you want to mask the result with (1 << crc_width) - 1 after each update.
(And what's the '& 0xFF' for?  Isn't it redundant?)
