I agree it's unnecessary and I see that Ard has addressed this in a patch.

In practice, the loop will only do one or two mappings. That's because of
two factors.

First the code attempts to map a little more than it needs (2*EFI_PAGE_SIZE).
Secondly, right now only one entry in the MOKvar config table might be quite
large, i.e. the entry named MoKListRT. It's extremely likely that the header
of MokListRT entry will be encountered on the first mapping. If that entry
goes beyond what was originally mapped, then a second mapping will cover all
the data in that large entry as well as the remaining small entries that might
follow it.
