// Invokes the ninja restat tool (ie, ninja -C build_dir -t restat). This tool
// tells ninja that it should check the mtime of the provided files and update
// the .ninja_log accordingly. This is useful when GN knows that an output file
// in the ninja graph has been updated without invoking ninja.
// The best example of this is after gn gen runs, we know that has
// been potentially updated, but ninja will still use the mtime from the
// .ninja_log and could trigger another re-gen. By telling ninja to restat
//, we can eliminate the extra re-gen.
// If files_to_restat is empty, ninja will restat all files that have an entry
// in the .ninja_log.
