cmd/go: populate debug.Module.Sum even if build in devel mode #33533

Related to #29814

When a binary is build from within a module's source tree, the output from runtime/debug.ReadBuildInfo currently reports the module as having version (devel).
This is understandable.

However, I don't think there is technical reason why the Sum at least can't be computed.

This has usefulness when building commandline tools from the source tree, and you want to at least emit some versioning information that distinguishes one build from another build at a different commit.

This request seems eminently reasonable to me.
