[tag] initialize_porosity_from_medium_property

This optional parameter indicates whether the porosity and transport porosity should be initialized from the medium properties porosity and transport_porosity, respectively.

This initialization is desired in almost all cases with one notable exception: simulation restart when a non-constant porosity model is used, e.g. with PorosityFromMassBalance or TransportPorosityFromMassBalance.

In such a restart case simply set this parameter to false.
