cmd/go/internal/modload: remove the Reqs function

The Reqs function returns an mvs.Reqs implemention for the global
build list. The API that it presents assumes that the build list is
globally consistent (problematic for #40775) and readily available
(problematic for #36460).

Fortunately, it is no longer used outside of the modload package.
We can instead use individual instances of the unexported mvsReqs
struct, making the dependency on the global build list more explicit.

For #36460
For #40775
