[Bf-cycles] Status Update on OSL

Sorry, sent the previous mail too early.

* I fixed the remaining OSL API issues in Cycles (changes in osl_shader, 
and osl_services). Changes in osl_services still need some more testing 
before I will commit them. (OSLRenderServices missed some functions from 
newer OSL versions which had to be implemented).

* I am working on compiling fresh OSL 1.2 libs (they released the new 
stable tag just 2 days ago), have a linker issue there, already asked 
for help on the osl-dev mailing list.

When OSL / Cycles will finally compile, I guess there will be a few bugs 
still, so probably it won't render fine in the beginning.
It's also not on par with the svm shader backend, some features need to 
be written in OSL still.

If you want to give it a try or help, I started to write some docs for 
Cycles / OSL compilation.
