use-flow-type doesn't seem to consider "TypeParameterInstantiation" nodes (flow docs examples)

// Reports:
// 'TestType' is defined but never used  no-unused-vars
// Despite being used directly below
type TestType = string

const x = testTypeParam<TestType>("test")

function testTypeParam<T>(in: T): T {
  return in

From a bit of debugging, I think this might not be an issue with the code here (but it is possible to work around here) but instead with eslint's AST traversal not visiting TypeParameterInstantiation nodes, since those nodes have a params property of type Array<GenericTypeAnnotation> and GenericTypeAnnotation is being properly visited by use-flow-type.

Thanks for reporting. It is planned to move the responsibility for handling no-unused-vars for Flow types directly in babel-eslint parser. For more details, see this issue. I missed this bit, so it's good to know that this should be implemented as well.
