[analyzer] RetainCount: Add a suppression for functions that follow "the Matching rule".

Authored by NoQ on Apr 25 2019, 4:42 PM.



In the OSObject universe there appears to be another slightly popular contract, apart from "create" and "get", which is "matching". It optionally consumes a "table" parameter and if a table is passed, it fills in the table and returns it at +0; otherwise, it creates a new table, fills it in and returns it at +1.

For now suppress false positives by doing a conservative escape on all functions that end with "Matching", which is the naming convention that seems to be followed by all such methods. Let's see if we'll ever get to actually supporting these semantics.

Make tests more C++-y. They still test the C function case.
