Sorry not sure of the process here, should I create a CL against go 1.8?

CL mentions this issue.

gopherbot pushed a commit that referenced this issue Mar 23, 2017
Previously call stubs were generated and inserted in
Textp after much of the text, resulting in calls too
far in some cases. This puts the call stubs first, which
in many cases makes some calls not so far, but also
enables trampolines to be generated when necessary.

This is a backport for go 1.8 based on CL38131.

Fixes #19578
