gopls/internal/regtest: add an option to nest the workdir

Add a regtest run option NestWorkdir, which causes the working directory
to be nested in the editor workspace, and use it in some modfile tests
to exercise the new workspace logic.

For now we only run the nested tests while using experimental workspace
modules. In a later CL, the 'legacy' mode will be updated to find a
solitary nested module, at which point we should be able to run nested
in all modes.

Fixes golang/go#42111
