MEM_REF has the second argument and there could be callbacks that really
want to walk even that argument for whatever reason (gather all types
mentioned in some expression, whatever).  Implying from one place where
we do not want that what other code might want to do doesn't look right.

But, if you want, the patch could be simplified, handle the MEM_REF
in there this way unconditionally, so:
  else if (TREE_CODE (stmt) == MEM_REF)
      cp_walk_tree (&TREE_OPERAND (stmt, 0), cp_genericize_r, data, NULL);
      *walk_subtrees = 0;
before the sanitizer block, perhaps with some comments explaining it,
because we know cp_genericize_r doesn't need to have the callback
on the second MEM_REF argument.
