[release-branch.go1.7] runtime: fix getArgInfo for deferred reflection calls

Fixes #18333 (backport)

getArgInfo for reflect.makeFuncStub and reflect.methodValueCall is
necessarily special. These have dynamically determined argument maps
that are stored in their context (that is, their *funcval). These
functions are written to store this context at 0(SP) when called, and
getArgInfo retrieves it from there.

This technique works if getArgInfo is passed an active call frame for
one of these functions. However, getArgInfo is also used in
tracebackdefers, where the "call" is not a true call with an active
stack frame, but a deferred call. In this situation, getArgInfo
currently crashes because tracebackdefers passes a frame with sp set
to 0. However, the entire approach used by getArgInfo is flawed in
this situation because the wrapper has not actually executed, and
hence hasn't saved this metadata to any stack frame.

In the defer case, we know the *funcval from the _defer itself, so we
can fix this by teaching getArgInfo to use the *funcval context
directly when its available, and otherwise get it from the active call
frame.

While we're here, this commit simplifies getArgInfo a bit by making it
play more nicely with the type system. Rather than decoding the
*reflect.methodValue that is the wrapper's context as a *[2]uintptr,
just write out a copy of the reflect.methodValue type in the runtime.

Fixes #16331. Fixes #17471.

The Go Programming Language

Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.

Our canonical Git repository is located at https://go.googlesource.com/go. There is a mirror of the repository at https://github.com/golang/go.

Go is the work of hundreds of contributors. We appreciate your help!

Binary Distribution Notes

If you have just untarred a binary Go distribution, you need to set the environment variable $GOROOT to the full path of the go directory (the one containing this file). You can omit the variable if you unpack it into /usr/local/go, or if you rebuild from sources by running all.bash (see doc/install-source.html). You should also add the Go binary directory $GOROOT/bin to your shell's path.

For example, if you extracted the tar file into $HOME/go, you might put the following in your .profile:

export GOROOT=$HOME/go
export PATH=$PATH:$GOROOT/bin

See https://golang.org/doc/install or doc/install.html for more details.
