qx, qy, qz are in unit of 2pi/alat
which means that, for instance, in a simple cubic lattice the zone
boundary along x has coordinates (0.5,0.0,0.0) because b1=(1,0,0)*2pi/a
in an fcc lattice the zone boundary in the x direction is instead
(1,0,0) because in fcc the smallest G vector in that direction is
