----
ref void foo()
{
}

void test()
{
    auto p = &foo();
}

Somewhat weird that it's allowed to return `ref void` and even take it's
address.
Might be at odds with some generic programming, but wouldn't know an example
requiring this.
Also see the discussion in https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/1815.
