ARMweb clock out

We do not use that for anything, so it will remain the default.
You're on your own for trying to reprogram that, you might be able to
do by disabling interrupts to keep TCPIP servicing from accessing it
while you do it. But we are not going to support doing that, ie. if
it doesn't work don't ask us why.

At the time changing from 20 MHz operation was too big of an impact on
software, and keeping a unified code base with the other products.
