You might have segments in a binary that don't start at the beginning of a page
or that end before the end of a page. For example:

Type Offset VirtAddr PhysAddr
FileSiz MemSiz Flags Align
LOAD 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000
0x000000000001bcac 0x000000000001bcac R E 1000
LOAD 0x000000000001c8e8 0x000000000001c8e8 0x000000000001c8e8
0x0000000000000790 0x0000000000000c68 RW 1000

There's no need to measure the extra padding (0x1bd00--0x1c7ff and
0x1cb00--0x1cfff) in this case.
