[mlpack-git] [mlpack/mlpack] LSH optimization: LSHSearch::ReturnIndicesFromTable uses less memory (#623)

The current code allocates space equal to the reference set and then uses arma::find to identify non-zero indices which were returned as the candidate set. This results in large memory allocations and slows down candidate search.

My change loops over the hash tables twice, first counting the number of reference points in the same bucket as the query and then a second time to actually add candidates to the reference set. This provides a small performance bump which should get more significant for larger reference sets.
