Subject: [PATCH] guix: find-package-by-name: list modules in path order

A particular effect of this is that if there are ambiguous
packages in a directory specified with `-L module_dir` and the
distribution, the version from `module_dir` will be loaded,
which is usually what would be expected. (E.g. for `guix build`
or `guix package -i`.)

* guix/discovery.scm (all-modules): Return modules in path order.
* tests/ Test local definitions take precedence.
