cmd/apidiff: store package path with export data

BREAKING CHANGE: If you have old files saved with -w, they will
no longer work.

When writing export data for a package, save the path of the package.

The export data format doesn't store this information. Previously
it didn't matter, because gcexportdata.Reader.Read would return
the package that was written. But since, that
is no longer true.

This was apidiff's bug, not gcexportdata's: for the path argument of
Read I was passing garbage (the filename) rather than the import path.
Read's doc doesn't specify what happens if you do that.

Also, update to latest.

Fixes golang/go#34849.

This subrepository holds experimental and deprecated (in the old directory) packages.

The idea for this subrepository originated as the pkg/exp directory of the main repository, but its presence there made it unavailable to users of the binary downloads of the Go installation. The subrepository has therefore been created to make it possible to go get these packages.

Warning: Packages here are experimental and unreliable. Some may one day be promoted to the main repository or other subrepository, or they may be modified arbitrarily or even disappear altogether.

In short, code in this subrepository is not subject to the Go 1 compatibility promise. (No subrepo is, but the promise is even more likely to be violated by go.exp than the others.)

Caveat emptor.
