SPM: Treat SP xlat tables the same as others
The translation tables allocated for the Secure Partition do not need to be treated as a special case. They can be put amongst the other tables mapping BL31's general purpose memory. They will be mapped with the same attributes as them, which is fine. The explicit alignment constraint in BL31's linker script to pad the last page of memory allocated to the Secure Partition's translation tables is useless too, as page tables are per se pages, thus their end address is naturally aligned on a page-boundary. In fact, this patch does not change the existing behaviour. Since patch 22282bb68a31 ("SPM: Move all SP-related info to SP context struct"), the secure_partition.c file has been renamed into sp_xlat.c but the linker script has not been properly updated. As a result, the SP translation tables are not specifically put at the start of the xlat_table linker section, the __SP_IMAGE_XLAT_TABLES_START__/_END__ symbols have the same value, the size of the resulting mmap_region covering these xlat tables is 0 and so it is ignored.
