Hi team,

I'm wondering why we install the *_test.go files in the *-dev binary package.
IMHO, other package won't import the test files from *-dev package.
And the CI system is to test building the src package from scratch. It
doesn't  run `go test ./...` from the -dev package.

So I think we should let the dh-golang stop installing test related
files in -dev pkg.

One doubt is that how the autopkgtest run for -dev pkg. Does it just
run again the `go test` like CI for src pkg?
