[release-branch.go1.12] go/analysis: disable embedded struct tag check

This disables the enhancement added in golang.org/cl/115677. The
original change was done in the old cmd/vet location, so it would be
non-trivial to port a full revert of all the code changes. Simply
skipping anonymous struct fields is a simpler way to undo the effects of
the CL.

The reason we want to disable this enhancement of the check in the Go
1.12 release branch is because a false positive was uncovered, which we
want fixed for Go 1.12.1. It's possible that the check will instead be
tweaked for 1.13, but for 1.12.1 we want to play it safe.

Updates golang/go#30465.

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.
