Updated lapack to 3.6.1.

 LAPACK 3.6.1: What’s new

[Mark Gates, UTK] blocked back-transformation for the non-symmetric eigenvalue \ 

It blocks NB gemv calls into one gemm call inside trevc. To do
that, it needs a new routine, trevc3, because unfortunately the
lwork was not passed into trevc. Attached is the performance speedup
for dgeev. It gives a nice 1.5x speedup for N=20000, and that
appears to still be increasing with N. This is not the improvements
that Greg Henry recently provided for doing the triangular solves
as BLAS-3 instead of BLAS-1. That will take a while to process,
but we expect another, even larger increase in performance when
those changes are applied. This also does not include doing multiple
(BLAS-1) triangular solves in parallel, which is available in MAGMA,
since that requires OpenMP or pthreads.
