go/types, types2: misleading error message when type param is not comparable #48712

Consider the following invalid program:

package p

func f[T any](t T) func(interface{}) bool {
	return func(x interface{}) bool {
		return x == t

The type checker produces the error cannot compare x == t (operator == not defined for interface{}), but that's not accurate. The real problem is that T is not comparable.
