GF$(2^8)$ or $\mathbb F_{2^8}$ can also be viewed as the vector space $\mathbb F_2^8$ of $8$-bit vectors (or bytes) over GF$(2)$ or $\mathbb F_2$. Suppose $\{\beta_0, \beta_1, \cdots, \beta_7\}$ is a basis of $\mathbb F_2^8$ over $\mathbb F_2$, that is, the sum $$a_0\beta_0 \oplus a_1\beta_1 \oplus \cdots \oplus a_7\beta_7, ~ a_i \in \mathbb F_2$$ equals ...

Your scheme is indeed an instance of output feedback mode (OFB), using $$(\mathit{key},\mathit{pad}) \mapsto H(\mathit{key}\oplus\mathit{pad})\text,$$ where $\mathit{key}$ corresponds to keyhash and $\mathit{pad}$ to hash, as the "block cipher". (It is very likely not really a block cipher due to lack of bijectivity, but that's not needed for output feedback ...

You'll find the test vector in a draft "Test Vectors for the Stream Cipher ChaCha draft-strombergson-chacha-test-vectors-00" available at the following link: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-strombergson-chacha-test-vectors-00 The document links a github repo where you can find all the vectors https://github.com/secworks/chacha_testvectors/ Another ...
