ive looked at 4 in my files and they are all nonsese.
I dont doubt that some of the issues are real but the signal
to noise ratio is too poor IMHO
also unless there is a way to silence false warnings without
changing the source the effort is futile as in each new
run the signal to noise ratio would get worse and we would spend
much more time just rechecking false warnings.
that said going over the coverity warnings likely already fixed most
of these static analyzer findable warnings leaving even more noise.

thus, my humble oppinion, people should rather look at roundup and fix real
issues until clang manages to reach at least a 50% signal to noise ratio

and calling it bugs is only true in the sense that they are clang bugs
