    fold-const: Fix up -fsanitize=null in C++ [PR105729]

    The following testcase triggers a false positive UBSan binding a reference
    to null diagnostics.
    In the FE we instrument conversions from pointer to reference type
    to diagnose at runtime if the operand of such a conversion is 0.
    The problem is that a GENERIC folding folds
    ((const struct Bar *) ((const struct Foo *) this)->data) + (sizetype)
range_check (x)
    conversion to const struct Bar & by converting to that the first
    operand of the POINTER_PLUS_EXPR.  But that changes when the
    binding to reference runtime check occurs.  Without the optimization,
    it is invoked on the result of the POINTER_PLUS_EXPR, and as range_check
    call throws, that means it never triggers in the testcase.
    With the optimization, it checks whether this->data is NULL and it is.

    The following patch avoids that optimization during GENERIC folding when
    -fsanitize=null is enabled and it is a cast from non-REFERENCE_TYPE to
