x/tools/cmd/godoc: prevent the the httptest.serve flag #28138

x/tools/cmd/godoc uses the usually-test-only net/http/httptest package.

But because httptest assumes it's running in a test, it registers its own flags, which means godoc ends up with mysterious flags:

  -goroot string
        Go root directory (default "/home/bradfitz/go")
  -http string
        HTTP service address (default "localhost:6060")
  -httptest.serve string
        if non-empty, httptest.NewServer serves on this address and blocks
        enable search index

Either stop using in httptest in godoc, or change httptest to somehow conditionally register that flag. Perhaps only if it looks like we're in a test binary. (check lookup of other testing flags?)
