gopls: add "go test" code action

This change adds "go test" as a code action and also introduce the
concept of explicit code actions, i.e. code actions that aren't returned
to the client unless it explicitly ask for it.

The purpose is to be able to have a mechanism that allows users to
execute a specific command in one shot, and future CL:s will add more of
the existing code lenses as explicit code actions. Code lenses can't be
used directly since they lack the range/kind combo to make them unique.

Updates golang/go#40438
