go/packages: support file= queries against overlay files #29048

As of cl/151999 we support adding new files in the overlay.
It is highly likely that any file that was added in an overlay is also going to be used in file= queries, as that is what all the editor tools will be doing.
At the moment we check the results of go list for a package that contains the file, which will not have any of the overlay files in it, it should be fairly easy to do that check after the overlay additions instead of before, to enable this use case.
