In ILUT changed the storage of level-of-fill from int to double, updated documentation to reflect actual behavior, and added a unit test.

Motivation and Context

Previously the documentation for this parameter given in setParameters() indicated that the parameter "fact: ilut level-of-fill" represented a max number of additional nonzero entries per row of the L and U factors, when it was actually being used as a fill fraction. As such, this is more appropriately represented by a double. The parameter was previously allowed to be provided as a double in input, but this value was cast to an int for storage and cast back to a double for computations. This truncation is unnecessary.

  • All new and existing tests passed.
  • No new compiler warnings were introduced.
  • These changes break backwards compatibility.

Additional Information

Unsure if this is consider breaking backwards compatibility. This could impact results for users providing a non-integer double value for this parameter, but in this case the previous behavior wasn't doing what was expected.
