Pasting here related commits.

Main development:
  r9616 Volumetric light brought to life, still incomplete
  r9617 Volumetric shader nVidia fix, debug WIP
  r9618 Volumetric shader: simple version WIP
  r9628 Volumetric shader: bugfix
  r9637 Volumetric lights: support for stencil path (shadows ignored), LOD bias
  r9638 Volumetric lights: disable scissor test
  r9639 Volumetric lights: nVidia compatibility

Fixes due to review (
  r9672 Reimplemented ray-polytope intersection, multiply average by distance within light volume, render backfaces only.
  r9673 Use ray parameters instead of 3D points.
  r9674 Simplified handling of depth texture.
  r9675 Show full-white frustum when #samples = 0.
  r9678 Now uniforms are used in standard means in volumetric lights.
  r9684 Oops... fixed volumetric lights on stencil shadow path (and noshadows too probably).
  r9691 Added "volumetric_dust" spawnarg for lights (only has effect on volumetric light).

The joy of dithering:
  r9692 Volumetric lights are now randomly sampled, number of samples can no longer be set in material.
  r9693 Volumetric sampling: use less random random =)
  r9694 Use Bayer matrix for randomization.
  r9701 r_volumetricRandomize renamed ot r_volumetricDither.

Changed the way how volumetric light is enabled:
  r9742. Volumetric light is triggered by "volumetric_light" spawnarg instead of "volumetricLight" material keyword.

Some more commits:
  r9751. Volumetric lights respect noshadows setting, and don't affect lightgem.
  r9762. Added support for "volumetric_noshadows" spawnarg.
  r9763. Also disable volumetric light with volumetric_noshadows 0 if user has disabled sampling.
  r9781. Fixed saving/loading volumetric lights.
