Expand description

Like span_lint but with a note section instead of a help message.

The note message is presented separately from the main lint message and is attached to a specific span:

If you change the signature, remember to update the internal lint CollapsibleCalls

NOTE: Lint emissions are always bound to a node in the HIR, which is used to determine the lint level. For the span_lint_and_note function, the node that was passed into the LintPass::check_* function is used.

If you’re emitting the lint at the span of a different node than the one provided by the LintPass::check_* function, consider using span_lint_hir_and_then instead. This is needed for #[allow] and #[expect] attributes to work on the node highlighted in the displayed warning.

If you’re unsure which function you should use, you can test if the #[allow] attribute works where you would expect it to. If it doesn’t, you likely need to use span_lint_hir_and_then instead.


error: calls to `std::mem::forget` with a reference instead of an owned value. Forgetting a reference does nothing.
