v9.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------

- added "-asm" option (AMD cards only) which enables assembler GPU kernels. In this
mode some tuning is required even in ETH-only mode, use "-dcri" option or or "+/-"

- improved ETH mining speed in ASM mode for some cards, also a bit reduced power
usage for some cards (fine-tuning is required via "-dcri" or "+/-" keys in
runtime).
NOTE 1: if GPU throttles, best "-dcri" value is different.
