this is not a problem.  the problem is that JTAG and DMI do not function
when this proposal is done.

therefore we *MUST NOT* attempt it.

Jean-Paul please *DO NOT *attempt to hand-edit the VHDL to try to connect
the JTAG, DMI or Core to different clocks internally.

i have a tested codepath where the Core, JTAG and DMI are confirmed
function *if the sys_clk is connected to all three*.

when the PLL clock is attempted to be connected to JTAG and DMI *all tests
