internal/lsp/analysis: add simplify-range pass from "gofmt -s"

This is one of the simplifications that "gofmt -s" applies.

A range of the form:
	for x, _ = range v {...}
will be simplified to:
	for x = range v {...}

A range of the form:
	for _ = range v {...}
will be simplified to:
	for range v {...}
