// # Analyzer unusedresult
// unusedresult: check for unused results of calls to some functions
// Some functions like fmt.Errorf return a result and have no side
// effects, so it is always a mistake to discard the result. Other
// functions may return an error that must not be ignored, or a cleanup
// operation that must be called. This analyzer reports calls to
// functions like these when the result of the call is ignored.
// The set of functions may be controlled using flags.
