DivPipeCore broke because you forgot (or didn't know) to account for the
changing number of fractional bits when you changed the bit width for

I was working on fixing that but gave up since I'm planning on using the
FSM instead for the oct tapeout, and I'm planning on rewriting the div
pipeline to add dynamic partitioning and loop-back for the 28nm tapeout, so
the current div pipe core won't be needed. What we could do is just revert
the bitwidth changes if we want to have working code anyway.
