[Rpm-maint] [rpm-software-management/rpm] RFE: run static code analysis in CI (#306)

I'll create a RPM.ORG project at scan.coverity.com and import the code to assess the level of pain (and there _WILL_ be pain: it took me several weeks of mind-numbing clickety poo to get the level of reported positives from the coverity firehose down to something that was useful for rpm maintenance.)

clang is okay (try splint sometime ;-). OTOH coverity reuses older analyses to improve their product.
So even with no new scans, there are sometimes new problems reported. Quirky, but the process is at least transparent, unlike fuzzing.
