runtime: unsafe pointer maps #22931

There are several places in the code where pointers are stored into slots that the pointer maps do not note as holding pointers.

While the occurrences found so far appear benign with the current GC they do prevent adding diagnostics to the write barrier intended to detect errant writes. At the very least they should be documented as to why they are benign.

It would be nice to list those locations here.
