    gdb: silence unused-but-set-variable warning about yynerrs in cp-name-parser.y
    When building with clang 15 on Ubuntu 20.04, I get:
          CXX    cp-name-parser.o
        cp-name-parser.c.tmp:1777:9: error: variable 'cpnameyynerrs' set but not used [-Werror,-Wunused-but-set-variable]
            int yynerrs;
        /home/smarchi/src/binutils-gdb/gdb/yy-remap.h:58:18: note: expanded from macro 'yynerrs'
        #define yynerrs         GDB_YY_REMAP (yynerrs)
        /home/smarchi/src/binutils-gdb/gdb/yy-remap.h:40:29: note: expanded from macro 'GDB_YY_REMAP'
        /home/smarchi/src/binutils-gdb/gdb/yy-remap.h:39:39: note: expanded from macro 'GDB_YY_REMAP_1'
        /home/smarchi/src/binutils-gdb/gdb/yy-remap.h:38:39: note: expanded from macro 'GDB_YY_REMAP_2'

    This is because clang 15 warns for something like this:
        int n;
        n = 0;
    whereas previous versions do not.
    yynerrs is defined in yyparse and is there for actions to use.  Since
    the actions in cp-name-parser.y don't use it, we get a warning.  We see
    this problem on this particular .y file because it uses `%pure-parser`
    [1], which makes yynerrs a local rather than a global.
    I initially fixed this by using
    DIAGNOSTIC_IGNORE_UNUSED_BUT_SET_VARIABLE (like in commit f7aa1a5acc5
    ("gold: Suppress "unused" variable warning on Clang")), but then I
    realized we could suppress the warning in a more fine-grained way using
    this in a rule:
        (void) yynerrs;
