internal/lsp: consolidate progress reporting

This change contains several improvements for progress reporting:

 + Consolidate the 'progressWriter' interface into the workDone
   interface.  Now all progress reporting should use workDone, and the
   workDoneWriter struct is just an io.Writer adapter on top of
 + Factor out the pattern of progress reporting, and use for all
   asynchronous commands.
 + Make several commands that were previously synchronous async.
 + Add a test for cancellation when the WorkDone API is not supported.
 + Always report workdone progress using a detached context.
 + Update 'run tests' to use the -v option, and merge stderr and stdout,
   to increase the amount of information reported.
 + Since $/progress reporting is now always run with a detached context,
   the 'NoOutstandingWork' expectation should now behave correctly. Use
   it in a few places.

A follow-up CL will improve the messages reported on command completion.
