Define QEMU_PLUGIN_API_IMPLEMENTATION in api.c and core.c
We removed the need of .symbols file, so is the
configure script, if we one expose a function to qemu-plugin
just need prefix the function with QEMU_PLUGIN_EXPORT

We use QEMU_PLUGIN_EXPORT export the functions in api.c and core.c
and loading it in qemu_plugin_initialize, so we need a list of function pointer
deceleration such as
QEMU_PLUGIN_EXTERN qemu_plugin_uninstall_t qemu_plugin_uninstall;
If we only have a single .c file in a plugin, then define
QEMU_PLUGIN_EXTERN to empty is OK, but if we have multiple .c files
in a plugin, then we need distinguish the implementation and the
deceleration. only the main .c file should define the macro QEMU_PLUGIN_IMPLEMENTATION
other sources are user and should use extern
