This will act as if the timer timed out, and restarts it again if it is
repeating. It basically works like calling C<ev_timer_stop>, updating the
timeout to the C<repeat> value and calling C<ev_timer_start>.
If the timer is pending, its pending status is cleared.
The exact semantics are as in the wollofing rules, all of which will be

=item If the timer is started but non-repeating, stop it (as if it timed
out, without invoking it).
If the timer is repeating, either start it if necessary (with the
C<repeat> value), or reset the running timer to the C<repeat> value.

and start the timer, if necessary.
