cmd/compile: separate data and function LSyms Currently, obj.Ctxt's symbol table does not distinguish between ABI0 and ABIInternal symbols. This is *almost* okay, since a given symbol name in the final object file is only going to belong to one ABI or the other, but it requires that the compiler mark a Sym as being a function symbol before it retrieves its LSym. If it retrieves the LSym first, that LSym will be created as ABI0, and later marking the Sym as a function symbol won't change the LSym's ABI. Marking a Sym as a function symbol before looking up its LSym sounds easy, except Syms have a dual purpose: they are used just as interned strings (every function, variable, parameter, etc with the same textual name shares a Sym), and *also* to store state for whatever package global has that name. As a result, it's easy to slip up and look up an LSym when a Sym is serving as the name of a local variable, and then later mark it as a function when it's serving as the global with the name. In general, we were careful to avoid this, but #29610 demonstrates one case where we messed up. Because of on-demand importing from indexed export data, it's possible to compile a method wrapper for a type imported from another package before importing an init function from that package. If the argument of the method is named "init", the "init" LSym will be created as a data symbol when compiling the wrapper, before it gets marked as a function symbol. To fix this, we separate obj.Ctxt's symbol tables for ABI0 and ABIInternal symbols. This way, the compiler will simply get a different LSym once the Sym takes on its package-global meaning as a function. This fixes the above ordering issue, and means we no longer need to go out of our way to create the "init" function early and mark it as a function symbol. Fixes #29610. Updates #27539.
