s/Conscan/Coverity/, both here and in subject.

Yes.  I'm not sure we want the assertions anyway.

I use the following options with cov-analyze:

    -co BAD_FREE:allow_first_field:true
    -co DEADCODE:no_dead_default:true
    --user-model-file scripts/coverity-model.xmldb
    --derived-model-file ~/work/glib/glib-2.38.2.xmldb

where glib-2.38.2.xmldb is produced by "cov-collect-models --dir cov -of
glib-2.32.4.xmldb" after a full Coverity scan of glib.
