This happened to be harder than I expected. I do have implementation of two
bcrypt cores which works in simulation. However, on ZedBoard one core works
fine while the other one produces incorrect result. I haven't managed to
figure out where is the problem yet, especially because both cores use the
same logic. Unfortunately, I encountered clock problems again. PlanAhead
reports maximum implemented frequency to be 84 MHz. But changing it had no
influence on outcome - first core works on 100 MHz clock while incorrect
result from the other core is the same for different clock frequencies. I
tried 83 MHz clock but it had same performance as 100 MHz clock which is
the same problem as earlier.
I'm using 50 MHz clock at the moment and I'll try to get other core working
on that frequency. When I succeed in that, I'll experiment with higher
