[gopls-release-branch.0.3] internal/lsp: remove nilness analyzer

The nilness analyzer requires SSA, which is very expensive to build and
uses a lot of RAM. It also seems to really shoot up memory usage when it
hits certain cases, which is causing a lot of problems for users.
Disable this analysis - we'll leave SSA to staticcheck.

Updates golang/go#36639

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.
