cmd/go: add minimal module-awareness for legacy operation We want authors to be able to publish code that works with both the current standard go command and the planned new go command support for modules. If authors have tagged their code v2 or later, semantic import versioning means the import paths must include a v2 path element after the path prefix naming the module. One option for making this convention compatible with original go get is to move code into a v2 subdirectory of the root. That makes sense for some authors, but many authors would prefer not to move all the code into a v2 subdirectory for a transition and then move it back up once we everyone has a module-aware go command. Instead, this CL teaches the old (non-module-aware) go command a tiny amount about modules and their import paths, to expand the options for authors who want to publish compatible packages. If an author has a v2 of a package, say my/thing/v2/sub/pkg, in the my/thing repo's sub/pkg subdirectory (no v2 in the file system path), then old go get continues to import that package as my/thing/sub/pkg. But when go get is processing code in any module (code in a tree with a go.mod file) and encounters a path like my/thing/v2/sub/pkg, it will check to see if my/thing/go.mod says "module my/thing/v2". If so, the go command will read the import my/thing/v2/sub/pkg as if it said my/thing/sub/pkg, which is the correct "old" import path for the package in question. This CL will be back-ported to Go 1.10 and Go 1.9 as well. Once users have updated to the latest Go point releases containing this new logic, authors will be able to update to using modules within their own repos, including using semantic import paths with vN path elements, and old go get will still be able to consume those repositories. This CL also makes "go get" ignore meta go-import lines using the new "mod" VCS type. This allows a package to specify both a "mod" type and a "git" type, to present more efficient module access to module-aware go but still present a Git repo to the old "go get". Fixes #24751. Fixes #25069.
