This is a compiler crash on valid code that used to work with Go 1.15.

@dmitshur dmitshur added this to the Go1.16.1 milestone Feb 19, 2021

…rly for empty returns

The code for delayed declaration of inlined result parameters only
handles non-empty return statements. This is generally okay, because
we already early declare if there are any (non-blank) named result

But if a user writes a function with only blank result parameters and
with exactly one return statement, which is empty, then they could end
up hitting the dreaded "Value live at entry" ICE.

This CL fixes the issue by ensuring we always early declare inlined
result parameters if there are any empty return statements.

Fixes #44358.
