Description: Since openssl has supported whirlpool for some time and it is faster than SHA512 on larger binaries, I would like to request support for this hashing algorithm. The good news is the patch is extremely simple to do. See below...

Additional info:
* package version(s)
pacman v4.2.1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Add whirlpoolsum to your PKGBUILD
2) Add 'whirlpool' to list known_hash_algos in /usr/bin/makepkg.
Should look like this: known_hash_algos=('md5' 'sha1' 'sha224' 'sha256' 'sha384' 'sha512' 'whirlpool')
3) /usr/bin/updpkgsums
4) ??? profit!

Thanks for your consideration. :)
