As discussed in we should remove 'go mod fix' command as it's functionality is part of many commands and overlaps with 'go mod tidy'.

As per Russ in above CL,

"Honestly the most useful thing about fix is its doc comment,
since otherwise that part of all the other commands is not documented anywhere.
I don't expect people to actually use the operation.
If we dropped 'go mod fix' people could use 'go list -m' or almost anything else.

I need to write a 'go help go.mod'. If I do that, then maybe we can move the
fix discussion into that and drop 'go mod fix' entirely. Will leave for now though."
