kmcudaR: 'Yinyang' K-Means and K-NN using NVIDIA CUDA

K-means implementation is based on "Yinyang K-Means: A Drop-In Replacement of the Classic K-Means with Consistent Speedup". While it introduces some overhead and many conditional clauses which are bad for CUDA, it still shows 1.6-2x speedup against the Lloyd algorithm. K-nearest neighbors employ the same triangle inequality idea and require precalculated centroids and cluster assignments, similar to the flattened ball tree.
