  Paralel GPU processor support for Nvidia CUDA architecture

Parallel processing already has proven itself in V3.7, so getting 512 cores to
work parallel should get us impressive results I guess.

It probably would not be possible to let every core process a pixel, but maybe
some pipelining would work were one core processes certain aspects and passes
the result onto a queue that the next core picks up and processes farther, all
running mini algorithms that fit in their own private cache.

Cheers,
Louis
