armv7: don't hang on divide by zero
People make mistakes. Hanging the box is not a good reason to kill the firmware,
esp. since this is probably happening in a printk.
The only issue with the recursive call too printk is that we may
deadlock if we have locked something. But we can at least try.
Hanging is certainly not what we want ...
