K-Nearest neighbors on point clouds.

containing up to P1 points of dimension D.
p2: Tensor of shape (N, P2, D) giving a batch of N point clouds, each
containing up to P2 points of dimension D.
lengths1: LongTensor of shape (N,) of values in the range [0, P1], giving the
length of each pointcloud in p1. Or None to indicate that every cloud has
length P1.
lengths2: LongTensor of shape (N,) of values in the range [0, P2], giving the
length of each pointcloud in p2. Or None to indicate that every cloud has
length P2.
K: Integer giving the number of nearest neighbors to return.
version: Which KNN implementation to use in the backend. If version=-1,
the correct implementation is selected based on the shapes of the inputs.
return_sorted: (bool) whether to return the nearest neighbors sorted in
ascending order of distance.
Returns:
p1_dists: Tensor of shape (N, P1, K) giving the squared distances to
the nearest neighbors. This is padded with zeros both where a cloud in p2
has fewer than K points and where a cloud in p1 has fewer than P1 points.
p1_idx: LongTensor of shape (N, P1, K) giving the indices of the
K nearest neighbors from points in p1 to points in p2.
Concretely, if `p1_idx[n, i, k] = j` then `p2[n, j]` is the k-th nearest
neighbors to `p1[n, i]` in `p2[n]`. This is padded with zeros both where a cloud
in p2 has fewer than K points and where a cloud in p1 has fewer than P1 points.

A helper function for knn that allows indexing a tensor x with the indices `idx`

For example, if `dists, idx = knn_points(p, x, lengths_p, lengths, K)`

then one can compute the K nearest neighbors of p with `p_nn = knn_gather(x, idx, lengths)`.
It can also be applied for any tensor x of shape (N, M, U) where U != D.
Args:
x: Tensor of shape (N, M, U) containing U-dimensional features to
be gathered.
idx: LongTensor of shape (N, L, K) giving the indices returned by `knn_points`.
lengths: LongTensor of shape (N,) of values in the range [0, M], giving the
length of each example in the batch in x. Or None to indicate that every
example has length M.
Returns:
