Cycles: light_tree_pdf() now accounts for splitting

For the MIS calculations we need to be able to calculate the
probability to sample a light using the light tree. This
did not account for splitting so if splitting was used the
probability would be wrong. This has now been fixed.

Also, if we are in PATH mode then the splitting threshold is
set to zero.

Cycles: Light tree: energy and light picking fixes

When calculating the energy for a light source I previously returned
zero energy if is_constant_emission() returned false. This has now

The normal that is used for light picking for the BSDF approximation
in the importance calculations now takes into consideration if the
point is on glass, a reflective or transmissive surface. The position
and normal used for light picking is now stored in the ShaderData struct.

Cycles: Several emitters per leaf in light tree

This commits makes it possible for leaf nodes in the
light tree to have more than one emitter. This reduces
the maximum depth of the light tree which makes the
traversal of the tree faster but the sampling code
is slower if a leaf with several emitters is found.

Technical details:
-- If cost of splitting in build is larger than the
energy of the node then we create a leaf instead
of splitting.
-- Maximum emitters per leaf is now set to 64
-- During traversal if a leaf with several emitters
is found then we sample one of these based on
the importance of each emitter. This is calculated
on the fly and therefore a CDF generation without
dynamic allocation was implemented.
- Moved the distribution id to node id lookup from
light_distribution_pdf() to light_bvh_pdf().

Cycles: Updated the importance metric

The new paper provides an updated importance
metric which is now implemented. Also, a bug
in the index used for background lights in
the MIS calculations have been fixed.

Technical details:
- The new importance metric depends on the
normal at the shading point. The MIS
calculations have been changed
accordingly.

- The uncertainty angle was described in
the paper and is now implemented.

- In the implementation details section
of the paper they mention that they
limit the distance if splitting is
disabled. This is implemented too.

Cycles: Bug fixes

- Stopping recursive tree traversal if
negative PDFs are encountered.

- accum_light_tree_contribution() now
takes a scale factor as input which
is passed through to accum_light_contribution

- light_bvh_sample now changes randu. This
is similar to the other *_sample functions.
This fixed a bug where recursive traversal
with no splitting gave a different result
compared to just using light_sample.

Cycles: First iteration on split traversal

This makes it possible to sample and evaluate several
lights in a single tree traversal. Should sample highly
specular lights better too. Can only be used in branched
path tracing.

This commit contains the following:
* GUI for setting the splitting threshold
* Recursive split traversal
- Split method based on solid angle and BSDF peak
- At leafs the path radiance is accumulated to L
- Have created a simplified GGX eval that is not
currently being used.
* Refactor of common code

This is in development.
