[Bf-cycles] Viewport render keyboard shortcut + minor Cycles viewport interface consideration

Hi Brecht,

Just been thinking about a possible keyboard shortcut for 'Viewport 
Shading Rendered', not easy since most logical key combinations are 
already allocated. I find 'Alt Z' a very useful toggle for rapidly 
switching between 'Viewport Shading Solid' and 'Viewport Shading 
Texture', how about 'Alt ZZ' (inspired by key combination 'GG' Edge Loop 
slide) to quickly switch to 'Viewport Shading Rendered', 'Alt Z' returns 
to previously selected mode of viewport shading solid or texture?

Also, to prevent toolbar horizontal scrolling on a secondary smaller 
viewport window (useful for faster viewport rendering), what are your 
thoughts on moving the 'Pause all viewport preview renders' button 
(which appears only while 'Viewport Shading Rendered' is active) next to 
the viewport shading select button? Being so closely related, it feels 
logical that they might be found within close proximity to each other.

Thank you kindly for your time and feedback,
