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!

Always do MaxCardinality checks. 

Stockfish currently relies on the "filter_root_moves" function also having the side effect of clamping Cardinality against MaxCardinality (the actual piece count in the tablebases). So if we skip this function, we will end up probing in the search even without tablebases installed. 

We cannot bail out of this function before this check is done, so move the MultiPV hack a few lines below.
