go/types: implement generic conversions

This is a port of 4 CLs from types2: CL 356010, CL 357333, CL 357410,
and CL 357249. These 4 CLs are all related to implementing conversions,
and porting them together saved time (particularly because go/types was
already threading a *reason argument in some places).
