[PATCH 2/2] tty: omap-serial: fix a division by zero

From: Frans Klaver
Date: Tue Sep 23 2014 - 16:00:09 EST

If the chosen baud rate is large enough (e.g. 3.5 megabaud), the
calculated n values in calculate_baud_abs_diff may become 0. This causes
a division by zero when calculating the difference between calculated
and desired baud rates. To prevent this, cap n on 1.

Division by zero in kernel.
