go/packages: Load with no patterns should load "."

At least on the go list driver, which is the default fallback. Note that
we need to call 'go list' on Load("foo") and Load(), but not
Load("name=bar"). This is what the current logic was trying to

But it didn't take into account the case where there are zero initial
patterns, in which case we should still call 'go list'. Fix that, and
add a test.

Fixes #28767.

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.


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.
