runtime: use inlined function name for traceback elision

Currently, gentraceback decides which frames to print or elide when
unwinding inlined frames using only the name of the outermost
function. If the outermost function should be elided, then inlined
functions will also be elided, even if they shouldn't be.

This happens in practice in at least one situation. As of CL 258938,
exported Go functions (and functions they call) can now be inlined
into the generated _cgoexp_HASH_FN function. The runtime elides
_cgoexp_HASH_FN from tracebacks because it doesn't contain a ".".
Because of this bug, it also elides anything that was inlined into it.

This CL fixes this by synthesizing a funcInfo for the inlined
functions to pass to showframe.

Fixes #42754.
