Hi folks,

Catalin pointed out that the Device-GRE memory type is unused, despite
having a MAIR allocation. In removing that, I noticed that we also
allocate Normal-WT despite it only being used for EFI_MEMORY_WT mappings,
which can use Normal-NC instead.

With these changes, we free up a couple of MAIR entries for more
interesting things (e.g. outer cacheability attributes if we need them
in future for the SLC).

Patches taken against the arm64 for-next/core branch.
