Tuned values for search constants

Tuned search constants after many search patches since the last
successful tune.

The changes were rebased on top of a successful patch by Viz (see #2734)
and two different ways of doing this were tested. The successful test
modified the constants in the patch by Viz in a similar manner to the
tuning run:

LTC (rebased) @ 60+0.6 th 1 :
LLR: 2.94 (-2.94,2.94) {0.25,1.75}

https://tests.stockfishchess.org/tests/view/5ee43319ca6c451633a995f9

Further work: the recent patch to quantize eval #2733 affects search quit
quite a bit, so doing another tune in, say, three months time might be a
good idea.

Improve the anti-shuffling policy

We replace the current decrease of the complexity term in initiative
when shuffling by a direct damping of the evaluation. This scheme may
have two benefits over the initiative approach:

a) the damping effect is more brutal for fortresses with heavy pieces
on the board, because the initiative term is almost an endgame term;

b) the initiative implementation had a funny side effect, almost a bug,
in the rare positions where mg > 0, eg < 0 and the tampered eval
returned a positive value (ie with heavy pieces still on the board):
sending eg to zero via shuffling would **increase** the tampered
eval instead of decreasing it, which is somewhat illogical. This
patch avoids this phenomenon.

Increase the maximum hash size by a factor of 256

Conceptually group hash clusters into super clusters of 256 clusters.
This scheme allows us to use hash sizes up to 32 TB
(= 2^32 super clusters = 2^40 clusters).

Use 48 bits of the Zobrist key to choose the cluster index. We use 8
extra bits to mitigate the quantization error for very large hashes when
scaling the hash key to cluster index.

The hash index computation is organized to be compatible with the existing
scheme for power-of-two hash sizes up to 128 GB.

Minimal thinking time, even if only one rootMove.

without search, the eval returned can be misleading (e.g. mate instead of draw),
leading to wrong adjudication. With a minimal search, this is avoided.
This patch leads to 1ms long searches if there is only 1 move,
similar patches all indicate a small Elo gain.

Give bonus for rooks that are alligned with enemy kingring

The idea of this patch is that if rooks are not directly attacking the opponent king,
they can support king attacks staying behind pawns or minor pieces and be really
deadly if position slightly opens up at enemy king ring ranks. Loosely based on
some stockfish games where it underestimated attacks on it king when enemy has one
or two rooks supporting pawn pushes towards it king.

Queen Mobility Tweak

It's ok to have low mobility values for the Queen in the middlegame, but it's absolutely not ok to have low mobility values for the Queen in the endgame.
Decrease penalty for bad mobility in MG and increase it in EG.
