Section 8.3 says:

The Description of hmacResult, on top of page 77, says:

 * Description:
 *   This function will return the N-byte message digest into the
 *   Message_Digest array provided by the caller.
 *   NOTE: The first octet of hash is stored in the 0th element,
 *      the last octet of hash in the Nth element.

It should perhaps just say:

 * Description:
 *   This function will return the N-byte message digest into the
 *   Message_Digest array provided by the caller.

Rationale:
Cf. items (9), (16), (17), (22), (29), (30), and (33) above.
Full replacement text for the last two lines is deemed unnecessary.
