[LLD][ELF] Fix performance of MarkLive::scanEhFrameSection

MarkLive::scanEhFrameSection is used to retain personality/LSDA
functions when --gc-sections is enabled.

Improve its performance by only iterating over the .eh_frame relocations
that need to be resolved for an EhSectionPiece. This optimization makes
the same assumption as elsewhere in LLD that the .eh_frame relocations
are sorted by r_offset.

This appears to be a performance regression introduced in commit
e6c24299d237 (https://reviews.llvm.org/D59800).

This change has been seen to reduce link time by up to ~50%.
