Currently, any range passed to CpuArchProtocol::SetMemoryAttributes is
fully broken down into page mappings if the start or the size of the
region happens to be misaliged relative to the section size of 1 MB.

This is going to hurt when we enable strict memory permissions, given
that we remap the entire RAM space non-executable (modulo the code
bits) when the CpuArchProtocol is installed.

So refactor the code to iterate over the range in a way that ensures
that all naturally aligned section sized subregions are not broken up.
