Define a new fixed/patchable PCD that sets the DXE memory protection
policy: its primary use is to define which memory types should have
their executable permissions removed. Combined with the image protection
policy, this can be used to implement a strict W^X policy, i.e.. a policy
where no regions exist that are both executable and writable at the same
time.
