Checksum calculation
Summary of octal values in nibbles must be same as octal value in checksum
nibble (only first 3 bits are used). Binary value for checksum nibble is
calculated by sum of binary values in checked nibbles + sum of octal values
in checked nibbles divided by 8. Only bit 0 of this sum is used.
