cmd/mobile: add an arbitrary package to go-list at gomobile-init

go-list without a given module/package tries to analyze the module
at the current directory. If the current directory's module doesn't
have any Go files and is empty, go-list fails. This is the cause
of the problem that gomobile-init fails if the current directory
is such module.

This CL fixes this issue by giving an arbitrary standard library
when executing go-list.

Fixes golang/go#36668

Go support for Mobile devices

The Go mobile repository holds packages and build tools for using Go on mobile platforms.

Package documentation as a starting point:

Caution image

The Go Mobile project is experimental. Use this at your own risk. While we are working hard to improve it, neither Google nor the Go team can provide end-user support.

This is early work and installing the build system requires Go 1.5. Follow the instructions on to install the gomobile command, build the basic and the bind example apps.

Contributions to Go are appreciated. See
