We're trying to keep to more generic names such as "core" for
clocks like this. We've had problems in the past where hardware
designers named the clock input after the name of the hardware
and then the name of the hardware changed in the next version of
the chip (although the hardware was mostly compatible with the
previous version) and so they renamed the clock input. This
leaked into the software drivers and we had horrible things like
platform data for clock names. Sticking to "core" indicates what
the clock does (i.e. it clocks the core PRNG hardware) while
staying generic enough to prevent problems in the future if the
block is renamed to something else. It might also help us in the
future should our bus layer become smart enough to manage clocks
for drivers without their knowing.

It's good practice to add the unit address here, so rng@f9bff000.
