[ELF] Full support for -n (--nmagic) and -N (--omagic) via common page

Description

[ELF] Full support for -n (--nmagic) and -N (--omagic) via common page

The -n (--nmagic) disables page alignment, and acts as a -Bstatic
The -N (--omagic) does what -n does but also marks the executable segment as
writeable. As page alignment is disabled headers are not allocated unless
explicit in the linker script.

To disable page alignment in LLD we choose to set the page sizes to 1 so
that any alignment based on the page size does nothing. To set the
Target->PageSize to 1 we implement -z common-page-size, which has the side
effect of allowing the user to set the value as well.

Setting the page alignments to 1 does mean that any use of
CONSTANT(MAXPAGESIZE) or CONSTANT(COMMONPAGESIZE) in a linker script will
return 1, unlike in ld.bfd. However given that -n and -N disable paging
these probably shouldn't be used in a linker script where -n or -N is in
use.
