ARM: 6953/1: DT: don't try to access physical address zero
If the DT physical address is zero, this is equivalent to no DT. Especially when the actual RAM physical address is not located at zero, the result of phys_to_virt() would point to la-la-land and crash the kernel, which crash is completely silent this early during boot.
