    From the padlock spec..

    "SRC Bits[9:8] Noise source select (I): These bits control the two noise
    sources on the processor that input bits to the accumulation buffers.
    On Nehemiah processors prior to stepping 8, these bits are reserved
    and undefined. The default RESET state is both bits = 0."

    Something like this perhaps ?
