Computation takes 2779846 clock cycles so expected c/s rate is 54 c/s for
150 MHz and 36 c/s for 100 MHz (not including communication overhead).
Clock rate influences communication as well because DMA and buses are
connected to the same clock as bcrypt IP.

I don't know yet, I'm trying 125 MHz at the moment.
