[mpiwg-tools] reset a stopped pvar

What is the right behavior when resetting a stopped pvar? The standard
says setting to its starting value.
For counters, timers etc, setting them to zero sounds reasonable.
But for a watermark, setting it to "the current utilization level" looks
weird. It implies that a value caught during the stopped period can affect
its future value when the pvar is re-started.
Probably, we should reset a stopped watermark to a state as if it has
never been started.
Any comments? Thanks
