runtime: omit nil-channel cases from selectgo's orders

Currently, selectgo does an initial pass over the cases array to look
for entries with nil channels, so they can be easily recognized and
skipped later on. But this still involves actually visiting the cases.

This commit changes selectgo to omit cases with nil channels when
constructing pollorder, so that they'll be skipped over entirely later
on. It also checks for caseDefault up front, which will facilitate
changing it to use a "block bool" parameter instead.

Updates #40410.
