Only main thread checks time 

The main change of the patch is that now time check is done only by main thread. In the past, before lazy SMP, we needed all the threds to check for available time because main thread could have been blocked on a split point, now this is no more the case and main thread can do the job alone, greatly simplifying the logic.

Improve readability of evaluation functions 

This patch puts the evaluation helper functions inside EvalInfo struct, which simplifies a bit their signature and (most importantly, IMHO) makes their C++ code much cleaner and simpler to read (by removing the "ei." qualifiers all around in evaluate.cpp). 

Also rename the EvalInfo struct into Evaluation class to get a natural invocation v = Evaluation(p).value() to evaluation position p. 

The downside is an increase of 20 lines in evaluate.cpp (for the prototypes of the helper functions). The upsides are better readability and a speed-up of 0.6% (by generating all the helpers for the NO_TRACE case together, which helps the instruction cache).

Fix four data races. 

the nodes, tbHits, rootDepth and lastInfoTime variables are read by multiple threads, but not declared atomic, leading to data races as found by -fsanitize=thread. This patch fixes this issue. It is based on top of the CI-threading branch (PR #1129), and should fix the corresponding CI error messages. 

The patch passed an STC check for no regression: 

http://tests.stockfishchess.org/tests/view/5925d5590ebc59035df34b9f 
LLR: 2.96 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] 
Total: 169597 W: 29938 L: 30066 D: 109593 

Whereas rootDepth and lastInfoTime are not performance critical, nodes and tbHits are. Indeed, an earlier version using relaxed atomic updates on the latter two variables failed STC testing (http://tests.stockfishchess.org/tests/view/592001700ebc59035df34924), which can be shown to be due to x86-32 (http://tests.stockfishchess.org/tests/view/592330ac0ebc59035df34a89). Indeed, the latter have no instruction to atomically update a 64bit variable. The proposed solution thus uses a variable in Position that is accessed only by one thread, which is copied every few thousand nodes to the shared variable in Thread. 

No functional change.

Call TT.new_search() earlier. 

TT.new_search() was being called by mainThread in Thread::search(). However, mainThread is the last to start searching, and helper threads could reach a measured rootDepth 10 (on 64 cores) before mainThread increments the TT generation. Fixed by moving the call to MaintThread::search() before helper threads start searching.
