Cleanup and improvements for vtkPUnstructuredGridGhostCellsGenerator

Cleaning up the documentation, removing unneeded options (since
the default is faster than the non-default cases) and improving
performance by sending less data, better memory management and
better cell adjacency queries.

Addresses paraview/paraview#17385.

* First ghost cell layer algorithm:
* - each proc obtains surface points using the surface filter
* - perform an all-to-all to share surface points with each other
* - for each other proc, look at their points, and see if any points
* - share bounds to determine potential neighbor processes
* - share surface points with each potential neighbors
* - for each neighbor proc, look at their points, and see if any points
* match any of your local points
* - for each matching point, find all local cells which use those points,
* and send those cells to that proc. mark the cells that were sent
