commit a69f8d70 ("ptrlist: use ptr_list_nth() instead of linearize_ptr_\
list()", 2021-02-14) replaced a call to a local helper with a more generic
ptr_list function. The local function, argument(), was used to retrieve
the 'argno' argument to a function call, counting the arguments from one.
This call was replaced by the generic ptr_list_nth() function, which
accessed the ptr_list counting from zero. The 'argno' passed to the call to
argument() was 3 (the byte count), which when passed to ptr_list_nth()
was attempting to access the 4th (non-existent) argument. (The resulting
null pointer was then passed to check_byte_count() function, which had
an null-pointer check and so did not dereference the null pointer). This
effectively disabled the memcpy-max-count check.

In order to fix the check, change the 'argno' of 3 to the 'index' of 2.
Also, add a simple regression test.
