// particular |filepath| will not be touched on disk and |filepath| doesn't even
// have to exist. This means that the function does not work for directories
// (i.e. |filepath| is assumed to be a path to a file).
// Note that this function might need to read from disk the mime-types data
// provided by the OS. Therefore this function should not be called from
// threads that disallow IO via base::ThreadRestrictions::SetIOAllowed(false).
// If the mime type is unknown, this will return application/octet-stream.
