Good catch. The intent was that adjust_ptr_min_max_vals() wouldn't mark
dst_reg's type/id in the case when it returned -EACCES, but indeed there
are some such paths, and rather than changing those it may be easier to
change the type/id back to scalar/0. I don't think we need to go as far
as calling __mark_reg_unknown() on it though, its bounds and align
shouldn't have been screwed up by adjust_ptr_min_max_vals().
