I vectorized a whole family of hashing functions, specifically:
h = a*h +b +x_i
where a, b are constants and x_i the current element. Mathematical proof is also provided. Many hashing functions fall into this category, like 3 out of 4 functions in the Berkeley DB hash/hash_func.c source code. All 3 functions are vectorized and results are given.

Source code can be found at:

while the paper (in pdf form) can be found at: ... ashing.pdf

Comments, feedback welcome. I don't suppose any major error in there, but still if you find something, please let me know :-)
