martisch cmd/compile: avoid string allocations when map key is struct or array…
… literal

x = map[string(byteslice)] is already optimized by the compiler to avoid a
string allocation. This CL generalizes this optimization to:

x = map[T1{ ... Tn{..., string(byteslice), ...} ... }]
where T1 to Tn is a nesting of struct and array literals.

Found in a hot code path that used a struct of strings made from []byte
slices to make a map lookup.

There are no uses of the more generalized optimization in the standard library.
Passes toolstash -cmp.
