go/types: function call has invalid type just because an argument is undefined #15305

For a function call such as fmt.Print(), the type checker infers the type (n int, err error). But for a call with an invalid argument, such as fmt.Print(undefined), the type checker infers an invalid type, even though the result type is known and is independent of the arguments. This happens for single-result function calls (like fmt.Sprint) too.

I couldn't see an obvious mistake in the go/types/call.go code.
