Document /d2cgsummary and other internal compilation metrics flags

There was a blog post by Aras Pranckevičius about an undocumented compiler flag /d2cgsummary. It would appear that the backend has the ability to report certain metrics that could possibly help diagnose unusual compilation times.

Slow compile times are a pain to figure out. Properly documenting these flags (and adding more!) could help us stay sane and happy.

        Links to both the blog post and the reddit discussion are getting caught in the spam filter, so I can't post them here. You can check /r/cpp and look for the post on Aras' blog on 2017-10-23.
