Unused arguments to async fn are dropped too early #54716

Unused arguments to async fn are not moved into the resulting generator so are dropped before the future runs, here's some example psuedo-code demonstrating this (full running playground example here):

async fn foo(log1: DropLog, _log2: DropLog) {
    println!("Got log1: {:?}", log1);

fn bar(log1: DropLog, _log2: DropLog) {
    println!("Got log1: {:?}", log1);

fn main() {
    foo(DropLog(1), DropLog(2)).poll(...);
    bar(DropLog(3), DropLog(4));

which gives the output:

Dropped DropLog(2)
Got log1: DropLog(1)
Dropped DropLog(1)

Got log1: DropLog(3)
Dropped DropLog(4)
Dropped DropLog(3)

I found this because of a related issue with futures-await(0.1) posted to urlo, it's at the very least surprising behaviour that needs documenting if not a bug.
