At a quick glance, most of these seem to be cases of assuming system
calls do not store to the objects they receive pointers to. This makes
them false positives, but if llvm is actually making that same
assumption when optimizing that could be a bug in itself. Hopefully
it's just treating it as "unknown" whether the object is stored to,
rather than "definitely not accessed".

I'll look at it in more detail later. Thanks!
