mkimage: Simplify header size logic

For EFI images, we always have the following layout:

  [PE header]
  [first section (which also is the entry point)]

Currently there are 2 places where we define how big header+padding are:
in the .vaddr_offset member of our target image definition struct as well
as in code in grub_install_generate_image().

Remove the latter, so that we only have a single place to modify if we
need to change the padding.
