Comment (by eschnett):

 The code in dh.cc now contains two if statements checking for higher order
 restriction -- once with a question mark operator (introduced by this
 patch), and then in an existing if statement overwriting an existing
 variable. I suggest to rewrite this such that there is only a single if
 statement with an else branch, so that the variable "needrecv" is set
 exactly once.

 The parameter use_higher_order_restriction seems undefined in Carpet --
 did you forget to commit param.ccl?

 After these changes okay to commit.

 Somewhat related: The current nearby comment
             // NOTE: change in behaviour (affects only outer boundaries I
             // NOTE: b/c of this we need a low-level sync after the
 is wrong: We not only need to sync, but also need to apply boundary
 conditions (including symmetries) after each restriction! The current sync
 in Restrict.cc is not sufficient for this. Instead, we should call
 MoL_PostStep from Evolve.cc... But we should probably have a test case for
 higher order restriction first.
