Description

[analyzer] Don't crash when dynamic type of a variable is set via placement new.

If a variable or an otherwise a concrete typed-value region is being
placement-new'ed into, its dynamic type may change in arbitrary manners. And
when the region is used, there may be a third type that's different from both
the static and the dynamic type. It cannot be *completely* different from the
dynamic type, but it may be a base class of the dynamic type - and in this case
there isn't (and shouldn't be) any indication anywhere in the AST that there is
a derived-to-base cast from the dynamic type to the third type.

Perform a generic cast (evalCast()) from the third type to the dynamic type
in this case. From the point of view of the SVal hierarchy, this would have
produced non-canonical SVals if we used such generic cast in the normal case,
but in this case there doesn't seem to be a better option.
