A bug fix plus non functional speed optimization. Position::key_after(Move m) is now
consistent with Position::key() thus prefetching correct TT entries which speeds things up.

Tweak history updates

In general the history update bonus is slightly decreased by 11% which gives a slower saturation speed.
In addition only for main history the divisor is halfed (used history values are doubled to maintain same maximum)
which have an effect in the opposite direction on saturation speed.

Do more TT cutoffs in case of exact bound

The idea is that these TT entries are considered move valuable in TT replacement scheme - they are always overwriting other entries. So it makes sence for them to produce more aggressive cutoffs.

Limit the researching at same depth.

If the elapsed time is close to the available time, the time management thread can signal that the next iterations should be searched at the same depth (Threads.increaseDepth = false). While the rootDepth increases, the adjustedDepth is kept constant with the searchAgainCounter.

In exceptional cases, when threading is used and the master thread, which controls the time management, signals to not increaseDepth, but by itself takes a long time to finish the iteration, the helper threads can search repeatedly at the same depth. This search finishes more and more quickly, leading to helper threads that report a rootDepth of MAX_DEPTH (245). The latter is not optimal as it is confusing for the user, stops search on these threads, and leads to an incorrect bias in the thread voting scheme. Probably with only a small impact on strength.

This behavior was observed almost two years ago,
see https://github.com/official-stockfish/Stockfish/issues/2717

This patch fixes #2717 by ensuring the effective depth increases at once every four iterations,
even in increaseDepth is false.

Depth 245 searches (for non-trivial positions) were indeed absent with this patch,
but frequent with master in the tests below:

Simplify away FRC correction term

Since new net is trained partially using FRC data this part of adjustment that penalises bishops that are locked in the corner is no longer needed - net should "know" this things itself much better.

Update default net to nn-3c0054ea9860.nnu

First things first...

this PR is being made from court. Today, Tord and Stéphane, with broad support
of the developer community are defending their complaint, filed in Munich, against ChessBase.
With their products Houdini 6 and Fat Fritz 2, both Stockfish derivatives,
ChessBase violated repeatedly the Stockfish GPLv3 license. Tord and Stéphane have terminated
their license with ChessBase permanently. Today we have the opportunity to present
our evidence to the judge and enforce that termination. To read up, have a look at our blog post
https://stockfishchess.org/blog/2022/public-court-hearing-soon/ and
https://stockfishchess.org/blog/2021/our-lawsuit-against-chessbase/

This PR introduces a net trained with an enhanced data set and a modified loss function in the trainer.
A slight adjustment for the scaling was needed to get a pass on standard chess.

The real strength of the net is in FRC and DFRC chess where it gains significantly.

Tested at STC with slightly different scaling:

Ptnml(0-2): 10, 410, 3053, 1451, 76
nElo: 92.77 +-6.9 (95%) PairsRatio: 3.64

This is due to the mixing in a significant fraction of DFRC training data in the final training round. The net is
trained using the easy_train.py script in the following way:

```
python easy_train.py \
--training-dataset=../Leela-dfrc_n5000.binpack \
--experiment-name=2 \
--nnue-pytorch-branch=vondele/nnue-pytorch/lossScan4 \
--additional-training-arg=--param-index=2 \
--start-lambda=1.0 \
--end-lambda=0.75 \
--gamma=0.995 \
--lr=4.375e-4 \
--start-from-engine-test-net True \
--tui=False \
--seed=$RANDOM \
--max_epoch=800 \
--auto-exit-timeout-on-training-finished=900 \
--network-testing-threads 8 \
--num-workers 12
```

where the data set used (Leela-dfrc_n5000.binpack) is a combination of our previous best data set (mix of Leela and some SF data) and DFRC data, interleaved to form:
The data is available in https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1S9-ZiQa_3ApmjBtl2e8SyHxj4zG4V8gG?usp=sharing
Leela mix: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JUkMhHSfgIYCjfDNKZUMYZt6L5I7Ra6G/view?usp=sharing
DFRC: https://drive.google.com/file/d/17vDaff9LAsVo_1OfsgWAIYqJtqR8aHlm/view?usp=sharing

The training branch used is
https://github.com/vondele/nnue-pytorch/commits/lossScan4
A PR to the main trainer repo will be made later. This contains a revised loss function, now computing the loss from the score based on the win rate model, which is a more accurate representation than what we had before. Scaling constants are tweaked there as well.
