ArmVirtPkg/PrePi: clear frame pointer in startup code

When setting up the stack in the startup code and jumping into C code
for the first time, ensure that the frame pointer register is cleared
so that backtraces terminate correctly. Otherwise, output like the
below is shown when encountering an exception on a DEBUG build:

  Recursive exception occurred while dumping the CPU state

which is rather unhelpful, given that this prevent the remaining debug
output from being printed (register dump, stack dump, fault related
system registers etc)
