[PATCH] D39862: [analyzer] do not crash when trying to convert an APSInt to an unexpected type

This is the issue breaking the postgresql bot, purely by chance exposed through taint checker, somehow appearing after https://reviews.llvm.org/D38358 got committed.

The backstory is that the taint checker requests `SVal` for the value of the pointer, and analyzer has a "fast path" in the getter to return a constant when we know that the value is constant.
Unfortunately, the getter requires a cast to get signedness correctly, and for the pointer `void *` the cast crashes.

This is more of a band-aid patch, as I am not sure what could be done here "correctly", but it should be applied in any case to avoid the crash.

@dcoughlin faster review here would be appreciated to get the bot back to green.
