lsp/general.go: change error messages to give more context

The origin and meaning of error messages in IDEs is sometimes obscure.
For instance "unexpected config annotations\nSource: Go (extension)" in vscode has an ambiguous Source, and it's not clear what config annotations
are being referred to. This CL would change the first part of that
message to "unexpected gopls setting 'annotations', making clear that
the message is from gopls (and not the Go extension shim), and that the
suspect value is 'annotations' itself.
