clippy is the tool for Rust static analysis.
The mozlint integration of clippy can be run using mach:
$ mach lint --linter clippy <file paths>

To enable clippy on new directory, add the path to the include section in the clippy.yml file.

--fix option. It requires using nightly
which can be installed with:
$ rustup component add clippy --toolchain nightly-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
