What's the highest clock rate that ISE reports as meeting timing
constraints for your bcrypt core on this Zynq device?

Regarding observed speeds not matching expectations for a given clock
rate, perhaps you can use higher bcrypt cost settings to reduce the
effect the overhead has, and then you'll be able to calculate the actual
clock rate from the observed c/s rate.  Maybe this will give a clue.
For example, $2a$10 should be taking almost a second, and you can go
even higher than that for greater precision.
