Cycles: Add support for bindless textures.

This adds support for CUDA Texture objects (also known as Bindless textures) for Kepler GPUs (Geforce 6xx and above).
This is used for all 2D/3D textures, data still uses arrays as before.

User benefits:
* No more limits of image textures on Kepler.
We had 5 float4 and 145 byte4 slots there before, now we have 1024 float4 and 1024 byte4.
This can be extended further if we need to (just change the define).

* Single channel textures slots (byte and float) are now supported on Kepler as well (1024 slots for each type).

ToDo / Issues:
* 3D textures don't work yet, at least don't show up during render. I have no idea whats wrong yet.
* Dynamically allocate bindless_mapping array?

I hope Fermi still works fine, but that should be tested on a Fermi card before pushing to master.

Part of my GSoC 2016.
