Bash Version: 5.0
Patch Level: 18
Release Status: release

This worked just fine on Bash 4.2:

foo() {
    local -a args=("${!1}")
    echo "[IN] ${args[@]}"

declare -a args=("$@")
echo "Bash ${BASH_VERSION}"
echo "[OUT] ${args[@]}"
foo args[@]

$ ./test.sh 1 2 3
Bash 4.2.46(2)-release
[OUT] 1 2 3
[IN] 1 2 3
whereas on Bash 5.0 we get:
$ ./test.sh 1 2 3
Bash 5.0.18(1)-release
[OUT] 1 2 3
