kdblur: convolve with the laor model shape

A convolution model to smooth a spectrum by relativistic effects from an accretion disk around a rotating black hole. Uses Ari Laor's calculation including GR effects (Laor 1991). Modified from laor model by Andy Fabian and Roderick Johnstone.

Note that due to the energy binning the convolution process can produce spurious structures around sharp features in the spectrum being convolved. We strongly recommend testing for this by using the energies command to change the binning.
