In altcp_tls_mbedtls. there are some calls to mbedtls_ssl_flush_output(). This is a function that is defined as:

int mbedtls_ssl_flush_output(mbedtls_ssl_context *ssl);

in ssl_internal.h.

In my build process, the compiler emits some warnings as the following:

lwip\src\apps\altcp_tls\altcp_tls_mbedtls.c|532|warning: ignoring return value of 'mbedtls_ssl_flush_output', declared with attribute warn_unused_result [-Wunused-result]|

It seems it is important to check the error code returned by this function, but lwip does not.
