Will Bainbridge particle: Do not use moving mesh tracking algorithm when possible
The moving mesh tracking algorithm is deactivated on moving meshes when
the step fraction is 1 and (if the operation requires it) when the
requested tracking fraction is 0. This optimises usage for
post-processing, in which tracking is done at a single point in time at
which the mesh geometry is fixed, rather than over a time-step across
which the mesh moves. It also prevents the need for the storage of
old-time cell centres for such purposes.
