net/http: connReader.handleReadError doesn't use its error parameter #24201

This is the case since the func was added in October 2016, as it hasn't been touched since:

func (cr *connReader) handleReadError(err error) {

Should the func not receive the parameter, or make use of it?

I found this with a static analysis tool - I don't necessarily think this is a bug. I simply agree with the tool that the code is a bit suspicious.

Change mentions this issue: net/http: comment handleReadError more, superficially use its argument

@mvdan, @andybons and I were curious which static analysis tool found this, and whether it handles _ error okay now.

@bradfitz @andybons it's, which should be ok-ish at avoiding false positives. In particular, it does ignore unnamed and underscore parameters. But as always, if you find a bug, please report it :)
