[smooth] Minor speedup to smooth rasterizer
This speeds up the smooth rasterizer by avoiding a
conditional branches in the hot path. Namely:
- Define a fixed "null cell" which will be pointed
to whenever the current cell is outside of the current
target region. This avoids a "ras.cell != NULL"
check in the FT_INTEGRATE() macro.
- Also use the null cell as a sentinel at the end of
all ycells linked-lists, by setting its x coordinate
to INT_MAX. This avoids a 'if (!cell)' check in
gray_set_cell() as well.
- Slightly change the worker struct fields to perform
a little less operations during rendering.
