cmd/vulnreport, internal/ghsa: speed up GHSA query

The "vulnreport fix" command queries GitHub for GHSAs related to the CVE
in each fixed report. Instead of querying for every Go GHSA (slow),
query for GHSAs related to the specific CVE(s) of interest.

Skip the GHSA query entirely if the GHSAs field is populated,
unless the -always-fix-ghsa flag is provided.

This may issue more queries if fixing many reports with no GHSAs,
but dramatically speeds up the query when fixing a single report
(from 30s to <1s). Also, the number of queries no longer scales with
the size of the GitHub GHSA corpus.
