 * Compute an assignment of columns -> rows (and vice versa) such that every
 * column is assigned to at most one row (and vice versa) minimizing the
 * overall cost.
 *
 * The parameter `cost` is the cost matrix: the cost to assign column j to row
 * i is `cost[j + column_count * i].
 *
 * The arrays column2row and row2column will be populated with the respective
 * assignments (-1 for unassigned, which can happen only if column_count !=
 * row_count).
