Give a more reasonable amplitude for the UV bump with dustatt_powerlaw. Otherwise it is a factor Rv too large compared to dustatt_calzleit.

- The Herschel passbands only included the filter. Now they include the full throughput of the instrument. Flux differences are expected to be no more than 1%. (Médéric Boquien)
- The `dustatt_powerlaw` module indicated that the Milky Way bump has an amplitude of 3. This is only valid for the `dustatt_calzleit` module. As `dustatt_powerlaw` is normalised to A(V) rather than E(B-V) for `dustatt_calzleit`, the bump is a factor Rv larger. A more reasonable value is now given. (Médéric Boquien)
### Optimised
- By default the MKL library created many threads for each for the parallel processes. Not only was this not necessary as a high-level parallelisation already exists, but it generated a strong oversubscription on the CPU and on the RAM. The slowdown was over a factor of ~2 in some cases. Now we mandate KML to use only 1 thread fo each process. (Médéric Boquien & Yannick Roehlly)
