internal/lsp: handle deletion of a directory on disk

The current DidModifyFiles logic does not handle the possibility of a
directory URI in a didChangeWatchedFiles request. For creation and
changes, this is fine because only file URIs matter in those cases, but
for deletion, the deletion of a directory signifies the deletion of all
of the files in it.

Add handling for directories by looking up all of the known files in a
given directory. We then create file modifications for all of those
files, instead of the directory.

Fixes golang/go#38422
