Restart build must restart the corresponding workflow

When a build which is a part of workflow fails, restart link near the build does not do anything useful at all - we need to go to workflows page and restart from there. Would be very useful if restarting the build triggered workflow restart as well. Also reported by other folks here: "Rebuild" button doesn't re-run the workflow - Feedback - CircleCI ...

    It was confirmed to be worked on back in November by a circleci employee. Not sure why this feature got de-prioritized because the interface is unintuitive and requires 3 clicks instead of 1.

    Sorry for the confusion -- we decided that restarting an individual job having implications on other jobs in a workflow was too prone to surprising and unwanted behaviors. We are working to refactor a number of things about the UI around how jobs and workflows interact, and part of that is to make rerun a less confusing process.

    We have added the button to `Rerun workflow from beginning` on the jobs page. Thank you so much for your patience.
