[Ovmsdev] BCM seed key algorithm Maxus Euniq6

Well, it's tough to give definite suggestions without the sample list of
seed-key pairs. But, checking simple xor, bitshift, known CRC algorithms,
and summing are the first steps. Generally, at least until very recently,
usually nobody bothered to put too much effort into the algorithms so they
tended to be fairly simple. One of the best things to do is to compare what
happens to the key when you change the seed. It's great if you can get
thousands of pairs and find some where the seed differs by only a single
bit. Sometimes that yields important clues.
