control_restart index switch

If switch is set to -yes then the calculation continues with the undeformed mesh. The unknowns (in the node_dof records) are reset to the initial values. And time_current is set to the initial time.

This allows you to calculate some path dependent behavior completely from the start with a refined mesh.
