[Bf-cycles] Bolt Open Sourced to make Compute acceleration easy to use

Ah, that's interesting. This looks like the same sort of high level
library that NVidia provides for CUDA. I fear it's not particularly
useful for Cycles at the moment, as it wouldn't solve the issues we
have with running more complex kernels on AMD hardware. For speeding
up a series of simpler operations it could be good but a raytracing
kernel does not map to that easily.
