ELF Access Library (libelf, -lelf)
elf_hash(const char *name);
Function elf_hash() computes a portable hash value for the null
terminated string pointed to by argument name.
The hash value returned is will be identical across machines of different
architectures. This allows hash tables to be built on one machine and
correctly used on another of a different architecture. The hash value
returned is also guaranteed not to be the bit pattern of all ones (~0UL).
The library internally uses unsigned 32 bit arithmetic to compute the
