coerce_unspec_val_to_type does:

      set_value_address (result, value_address (val));

However, this is only valid for lval_memory.  This patch changes this
code to only set the address for lval_memory values.

This seems like an ordinary oversight in coerce_unspec_val_to_type,
and a test case would be difficult to write, so I'm submitting it
without a test case.

Tested on x86-64 Fedora 29; plus using an Ada program that exhibits
the bug (but which cannot be shared).

	* ada-lang.c (coerce_unspec_val_to_type): Only set address when
	value is not lval_memory.

This is OK.

Tom and I discussed it internally at AdaCore, and one of the questions
that Tom answered for me was the fact that it's OK to only handle
the case where the value is an lval_memory. For the other cases,
the value's location is handled a little earlier in
set_value_component_location.
