Cycles: Calculate face normal on the fly.

Instead of precalculation and storage, we now calculate the face normal during render.
This gives a small slowdown (~1%) but decreases memory usage, which is especially important for GPUs,
where you have limited VRAM.

Maybe this can be made a bit faster still, I am investigating this.
