go/packages: use native overlay support for 1.16

This change modifies go/packages to use the go command's -overlay flag
if used with Go 1.16. It does so by adding a new Overlay field to the
gocommand.Invocation struct. go/packages writes out the overlay files
as expected by go list before invoking a `go list` command.

Fixes golang/go#41598

Go Tools

This subrepository holds the source for various packages and tools that support the Go programming language.

Some of the tools, godoc and vet for example, are included in binary Go distributions.

Others, including the Go guru and the test coverage tool, can be fetched with go get.

Packages include a type-checker for Go and an implementation of the Static Single Assignment form (SSA) representation for Go programs.

Download/Install

The easiest way to install is to run go get -u golang.org/x/tools/.... You can also manually git clone the repository to $GOPATH/src/golang.org/x/tools.

JS/CSS Formatting

This repository uses prettier to format JS and CSS files.

The version of prettier used is 1.18.2.

It is encouraged that all JS and CSS code be run through this before submitting a change. However, it is not a strict requirement enforced by CI.
