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

Alt+ZZ would be a bad idea - switching to textured mode even momentarily
will cause a bit delay in scenes with lots of textures to load. Is Shift+Z
taken by anything? I'd be glad to have a hotkey.

Moving the pause button is a good idea I think - and while we're on the
topic of moving things, I'd appreciate if the Samples count in the top bar
was moved all the way to the left - it's common to use a smaller window to
render with, and memory consumption is not quite as important IMO as the
render progress. Currently if the window is too small and you want to see
how far it is, you cannot do so since resizing the window will restart the
render. Memory consumption doesn't change so much during render and thus
could move to the right and resizing the window wouldn't be an issue to see
those values.
