i know you want review of your algo, but instead i give an idea that
might work for you.

use a small cryptographic sponge in duplex mode, for example
keccak[200, r=8] reduced to 6 rounds. this sponge instance has 96 bit
security, and requires only 25 bytes of memory. this is a very safe
solution, although of course a magnitude slower than yours, and also
needs a fair bit of code.
