Merge branch 'feature/prism_only_linearise' into 'master'

feature/prisms only linearise

In an effort to reduce cost on massive meshes, this makes the linearise module only consider prisms (which is most cases are the only deformed elements

The ability to remove all the high-order information in a mesh can be useful at

To do this in NekMesh use the command:
NekMesh -m linearise high-order-mesh.xml linear-mesh.xml
NekMesh -m linearise:all high-order-mesh.xml linear-mesh.xml
The output will contain only the linear mesh information, all curved information

attempts to remove curvature from elements only where necessary. This is a
simple algorithm that removes curvature from invalid elements and repeats until
all elements are valid. Either \inlsh{all} or \inlsh{invalid} must be specified.
\item \inlsh{all}: remove curvature from all elements.
\item \inlsh{invalid}: remove curvature from invalid elements.
\item \inlsh{prismonly}: consider only prisms when removing curvature. This is
useful in the presence of a prismatic boundary layer.
