Bug Description

I'm not sure the process by which this should be decided, but there is a 'real' golang-go package on arm64 now and it should be possible to build docker with it.

(there is a real golang-go package on ppc64le too, but the cgo support isn't good enough to build docker)

Are there any potential downsides to switching?

I guess it might reveal bugs in our go arm64 implementation.

Has gccgo been working out OK for docker? Might be worth checking what
upstream think, I guess.
