You're actually getting the same number. The difference is that the
original C code is using signed 16-bit integers and 49504 has an MSB
of 1, so two's complement is used, while Lua is using 64-bit integers,
so two's complement doesn't come into play (MSB is 0). If you put
49504 into an unsigned 16-bit integer in C and then cast it to signed,
the result will be -16032.

Ah ha! Thank you, Johnathan, crc & 0xffff solved it. I'll work on the Li variant tomorrow.
