cmd/go/internal/modconv: use modules to examine instead of using only direct source control entries

Since modules now support parsing multiple forms of versions (including
commit hash and source control tag), I think modconv.ConvertLegacyConfig
no longer needs modfetch.ImportRepoRev. So I suggest that we use modules
to convert legacy config instead of using VCS directly. By doing this,
we can make the module proxy participate in the conversion process and
benefit from it (such as speeding up "go mod init" or breaking through
the firewall).

And since modconv.ConvertLegacyConfig is the only caller of
modfetch.ImportRepoRev, I think modfetch.ImportRepoRev can be removed.

Fixes #33767
