kerrconv: accretion disk line shape with BH spin as free parameter

Convolves the current spectrum with the line shape from the kerrdisk model. A detailed description can be found in Brenneman & Reynolds (2006ApJ...652.1028B). This model is quite slow so is best used after models such as laor or diskline have been employed to get an estimate of the best-fit parameters.

par1 emissivity index for the inner disk
par2 emissivity index for the outer disk
par3 break radius separating the inner and outer portions of the disk (gravitational radii)
par4 dimensionless black hole spin
par5 disk inclination angle to the line of sight (degrees)
par6 inner radius of the disk in units of the radius of marginal stability
par7 outer radius of the disk in units of the radius of marginal stability
