Merge exec and non-exec segments while merging executable bit.

The bfd and gold linkers create segments like this: r/x, r/w where
the r/x segment covers the start of the ELF file.

lld's segments look like this: r, r/x, r/w where the r segment covers
the start of the ELF file.

So we cannot rely on the location of the r/x to tell where the start
of the ELF is. But we can still rely on the r and r/x mappings being
adjacent. So what we do is when we see an r segment followed by an r/x,
merge the r into the r/x and claim that it is executable. This way,
the minidump writer will continue to see a single executable segment
covering the entire executable.

Testing: "make check" passes when breakpad is compiled with
lld compiled from trunk (requires bug fix from LLVM r303689).

Also patched change into chromium and tested these builds:

$ cat
is_chrome_branded = true
is_debug = false
is_official_build = true
use_lld = true
allow_posix_link_time_opt = false
is_cfi = false

$ cat
target_os = "android"
target_cpu = "arm"
is_debug = false
is_official_build = true
is_chrome_branded = true

With both builds breakpad_unittests passes and
chrome/chrome_modern_public_apk create good minidumps after navigating
to chrome://inducebrowsercrashforrealz (checked that minidump contains
stack trace entry for content::HandleDebugURL).
