Is there an item underneight it that says "CRC32c (Castagnoli, et al) Cyclic Redundancy-Check"? If so that is what you actually want to compile as a module. The "--- CRC32 functions" line is a header to show you that everything under it are CRC32 functions.. of course as of 2.6.10 I think CRC32c was the only supported function.
