    c++: function NTTP argument considered unused [PR53164, PR105848]

    Here at parse time the template argument f (an OVERLOAD) in A<f> gets
    resolved ahead of time to the FUNCTION_DECL f<int>, and we defer marking
    f<int> as used until instantiation (of g) as usual.

    Later when instantiating g the type A<f> (where f has already been
    resolved) is non-dependent, so tsubst_aggr_type avoids re-processing its
    template arguments, and we end up never actually marking f<int> as used
    (which means we never instantiate it) even though A<f>::h() later calls
    it, leading to a link error.

    This patch works around this issue by looking through ADDR_EXPR when
    calling mark_used on the substituted callee of a CALL_EXPR.
