hexagonal lattices

We strongly recommend to use only Gamma centered grids for hexagonal lattices. Many tests we have performed indicate that the energy converges significantly faster with $ \Gamma $ centered grids than with standard Monkhorst Pack grids. Grids generated with the ``M'' setting in the third line, in fact do not have full hexagonal symmerty.
