[USRP-users] Computation engine clock rates

To a first order, you can use any clock rate you like for computation
engines, either slower or faster than the bus clock.  However, if you go
too slowly, then your block can dribble data out to the rest of the system
and cause congestion.

If you need to have a really slow clock, you are probably better off
running the noc_shell and axi_wrapper at bus_clk rates and do your own
clock crossing within your logic to operate at a lower rate.
