Problem 1940. Decimation - Optimized for speed

This problem is similar to http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/cody/problems/1092-decimation, only this time the score will be based on how quickly you can determine which person will survive.

The sample sizes (num_prisoners) and number of prisoners killed (num_killed) will be larger than in the original problem, but other than that the problem sets are identical.
