UElement as PsiElement usage

Reports usage of UAST UElement as PsiElement.

The PsiElement obtained this way is ambiguous.

To obtain "physical" PsiElement use UElementKt.getSourcePsiElement(), for PsiElement that "emulates" behaviour of Java-elements (PsiClass, PsiMethod, etc.) use UElementKt.getAsJavaPsiElement().

See UAST - Unified Abstract Syntax Tree in SDK Docs.
