/* Kadane's algorithm is one of the most efficient ways to
 * calculate the maximum contiguos subarray sum for a given array.
 * Below is the implementation of kadanes's algorithm along with
 * some sample test cases.
 * There might be a special case in this problem if al the elements
 * of the given array are negative. In such a case, the maximum negative
 * value present in the array is the answer.
