internal/lsp/source: respect user's hover kind in signature help

I had originally wanted to create a shared code path for hover in all
cases, but hover has a lot more differences from the documentation in
signature help and completion than I expected. You can't use markdown,
and you probably don't want links--it would take a bigger refactor to
extract something that worked for each feature.

Handling the Structured and SingleLine hover setting also doesn't seem
necessary--those settings are really specific to the way the client
presents the hover, which isn't related to signature help or completion.

For completion, all we need is an extra check on the hover kind for the
NoDocumentation option.

Fixes golang/go#38577
