util/x86: add page page table generator

Certain platforms need paging enabled during cache-as-ram because
dirty lines are being evicted by a heavy speculative frontend. Paging
needs to be enabled in order to utilize the NX (no execute) bit for
the regions that are strictly data (such as the stack). This utility
creates 32-bit PAE page tables using a static address space, and
the resulting tables have entries for all the PDPTEs such that it makes
it easy to enable 2MiB naturally aligned DRAM mappings once memory is
trained. Either binary files can be generated or C files. The pages that
are linked use a default base address of 0xaa000000 that can be changed at
runtime to reflect where the page tables are actually loaded. Or
specify a physical address on the command line that is known a priori.
