Go patch committed: Don't deref unknown type when importing anon field


This patch fixes the Go frontend to not dereference an unknown type when
importing an anonymous field.  This fixes a bug in a recent patch I
committed.  I have a test case ready to commit to the master repository
after the Go 1.2 release is made.  This patch bootstrapped and ran Go
testsuite on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.  Committed to mainline and 4.8
branch.
