cmd/compile: more comprehensive tests for #24991

The revised test now checks that unsafe-uintptr correctly works for
variadic uintptr parameters too, and the CL corrects the code so this
code compiles again.

The pointers are still not kept alive properly. That will be fixed by
a followup CL. But this CL at least allows programs not affected by
that to build again.

Updates #24991.
Updates #41460.
