windows: fix -d=checkptr slice failures This CL fixes unsafe casts to slices that are missing length or capacity. Running tests with -d=checkptr enabled may panic on casting unsafe.Pointer to a static array of large predefined length, that is most likely much bigger than the size of the actual array in memory. Checkptr check is not satisfied if slicing operator misses length and capacity arguments `(*[(1 << 30) - 1]uint16)(unsafe.Pointer(p))[:]`, or when there is no slicing at all `(*[(1 << 30) - 1]uint16)(unsafe.Pointer(p))`. To find all potential cases I used `grep -nr ")(unsafe.Pointer(" ./windows`, then filtered out safe casts when object size is always static and known at compile time. To reproduce the issue run tests with checkptr enabled `go test -a -gcflags=all=-d=checkptr ./windows/...`.
