cmd/vet: know what builtin functions have no side effects #22851
Reminder issue to continue the work in https://go-review.googlesource.com/c/go/+/79536.
More broadly, this could be extended to automatically detect what functions are free of side effects. But this would require having access to the full source with full type information, and may be complex and costly, so I'm not entirely sure it's a right fit for vet.
A simpler version of the above would be to also add standard library functions, such as
That was the intention with the existing code, but it was buggy; builtin functions aren't treated as values by types.TypeAndVal. Thus, we should use the IsBuiltin method instead of IsValue. Teaching vet what builtin funcs are pure is already being tracked as a separate issue, #22851. While at it, also add a test with methods, just to be sure that the current logic doesn't break with that edge case either. Fixes #25303.
