 press the button, nothing happens.
 There have been so many changes to upload.php and class-wp-media-list-
 table.php and now, even if the $lost query finds something, there's a
 redirect and $lost is null after the redirect.
 Moreover, looks like there's nothing left in the code to actually display
 lost attachments.
 I'm not sure there's still a real use case for this scan, I had to
 manually edit the DB to have a media file attached to a no longer existing
 posts since wp_delete_post() "Points all attachments to the deleted post
 up one level".
 See #10911 for some background.
