GPUCONV2 Two dimensional convolution on the GPU using Cuda.

C = GPUCONV2(A, B) performs the 2-D convolution of matrices A and B.
If [ma,na] = size(A), [mb,nb] = size(B), and [mc,nc] = size(C), then
mc = max([ma+mb-1,ma,mb]) and nc = max([na+nb-1,na,nb]).

C = GPUCONV2(A, B, SHAPE) returns a subsection of the 2-D
convolution with size specified by SHAPE:
'full' - (default) returns the full 2-D convolution,
'same' - returns the central part of the convolution
that is the same size as A.
'valid' - returns only those parts of the convolution
that are computed without the zero-padded edges.
size(C) = max([ma-max(0,mb-1),na-max(0,nb-1)],0).

This function depends on two Cuda kernel files and which needs to be compiled
to .ptx files using the nvcc compiler.
