doc: mention 'go get golang.org/dl/...' in install I needed Go 1.10 to debug and fix a test failure on that Go version in x/tools, but I forgot what the magic 'go get' command for this was. Googling "download specific golang version" and similar keywords showed no results, presumably because the golang.org/dl subrepo isn't prominently recommended nor documented anywhere. The most appropriate documentation page to add this to is doc/install, since it goes into some detail and is well indexed. We only need a short section to introduce the trick. The example does mention a specific version, Go 1.10.7, but I couldn't imagine a way to make it version-agnostic while still being clear on what the commands effectively do.
