Patch for additional performance options

I've added several CVars to allow rendering of model lights and shadows, I've found that on my oldest computer, the game runs better if shadows are turned off, I've also added a way to check if models can be seen by the camera to avoid drawing shadows that can't be seen, this improves performance in most maps too, but I don't know if using CanSee method would be the best option for this. Please check it our and tell me what you think of it.

You can't use it.
