Improve the anti-shuffling policy We replace the current decrease of the complexity term in initiative when shuffling by a direct damping of the evaluation. This scheme may have two benefits over the initiative approach: a) the damping effect is more brutal for fortresses with heavy pieces on the board, because the initiative term is almost an endgame term; b) the initiative implementation had a funny side effect, almost a bug, in the rare positions where mg > 0, eg < 0 and the tampered eval returned a positive value (ie with heavy pieces still on the board): sending eg to zero via shuffling would **increase** the tampered eval instead of decreasing it, which is somewhat illogical. This patch avoids this phenomenon.
