qapi: Replace start_optional()/end_optional() by optional()
Semantics of end_optional() differ subtly from the other end_FOO()
callbacks: when start_FOO() succeeds, the matching end_FOO() gets
called regardless of what happens in between. end_optional() gets
called only when everything in between succeeds as well. Entirely
undocumented, like all of the visitor API.
The only user of Visitor Callback end_optional() never did anything,
and was removed in commit 9f9ab46.
I'm about to clean up error handling in the generated visitor code,
and end_optional() is in my way. No users mean no test cases, and
making non-trivial cleanup transformations without test cases doesn't
strike me as a good idea.
Drop end_optional(), and rename start_optional() to optional(). We
can always go back to a pair of callbacks when we have an actual need.
