Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)

♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

Previous version chess engine Stockfish 

Author compilation - Marco Costalba

Information on the compilation:

Rework lock protecting 

When changing 'search' and 'splitPointsSize' we have to 
use thread locks, not split point ones, because can_join() 
is called under the formers. 

Verified succesfully with 24 hours toruture tests with 20 
cores machine by Louis Zulli: it does not hangs. 

Verifyed for no regressions with STC, 7 threads: 
LLR: 2.94 (-2.94,2.94) [-3.00,1.00] 
Total: 52804 W: 8159 L: 8087 D: 36558 

No functional change.
