A faster AES implementation

When I added AES to CryptLib I found a nice compact public domain implementation to adapt. I liked it because it was quite a bit smaller in source code than the majority of implementations I had seen, and the final binary size of the executables were small. However when I wrote a speed test for it I discovered it had incredibly poor speed. The trade-off for the compactness was speed. In some cases this is desirable as it may need to be in a very small processor and doesn’t have to run particularly fast. However I wanted a faster one for CryptLib so I found a different implementation that is almost 5 times as fast.
