i don't think the position matters to the CRC algorithm used by sigmadsp.  
math principle: a ^ b ^ c is the same thing as b ^ a ^ c and c ^ b ^ a.

i could be wrong as to the CRC algo used though.  simple enough for you to 
check -- i implemented this firmware code based on a spec i wrote up for the 
sigmadsp peeps; i never actually had real firmware to test with.
