@randall77 requested issue #28797 to be considered for backport to the next 1.11 minor release.

@gopherbot, please open a backport issue for 1.11.

What steps do I take to accomplish a backport to 1.11?
Last time I tried to do one, I did it wrong.

…o IsSliceInBounds

IsSliceInBounds(x, y) asserts that y is not negative, but
there were cases where this is not true.  Change code
generation to ensure that this is true when it's not obviously
true.  Prove phase cleans a few of these out.

With this change the compiler text section is 0.06% larger,
that is, not very much.  Benchmarking still TBD, may need
to wait for access to a benchmarking box (next week).

Also corrected run.go to handle '?' in -update_errors output.

Fixes #28799.
