Improve Exception Output

When debugging a divide by zero error on the x86, an exception was printed which was marginally useful. However, it printed the task id in decimal and did not print the exception type as a string. This task is to review the exception handler for each architecture and attempt to make it more user friendly.

  • Print values in the most appropriate numeric base
  • Print exceptions as strings and with any accompanying details

This can be done an architecture at a time as a small task or as a set for a Summer of Code style project.
