Mismatched access detection doesn't differentiate between boolean and
byte element accesses. Alias type flattening erases element type for
boolean to T_BYTE.
The fix is to use more accurate source of information: the address type.
Also, marked the tests as not applicable to C1, since it doesn't
constant fold unsafe accesses.
Testing: regression test, JPRT.
