What did you do?

https://go.dev/cl/583755 removed the ifaceIndir function from the reflect package. Unfortunately, ifaceIndir is accessed using go:linkname by the popular github.com/goccy/go-json package. A bug has been filed to fix this upstream: goccy/go-json#506. Until that bug is fixed and the fix is distributed, we need to keep ifaceIndir available.

I'm filing this bug so that we remember to remove it. With luck we can remove this in the 1.24 release. Marking as a release blocker to make sure we consider it for 1.24.

What did you see happen?

ifaceIndir present.

What did you expect to see?

No ifaceIndir.

CL 583755 removed all uses of the ifaceIndir function,
and the function itself. Unfortunately, ifaceIndir is accessed
using go:linkname by the popular github.com/goccy/go-json package.
A bug has been filed to fix this upstream:
goccy/go-json#506
Until that bug is fixed and the fix is distributed,
keep this function available.
With luck we can remove this in the 1.24 release.

For #67279
