Extracted from #11811

This PR refactors the block inspector component to use getSelectedBlockClientId and getBlockName instead of getSelectedBlock which is not very performant.

* If the selected block is of an unregistered type, avoid showing it as an actual selection
* because we want the user to focus on the unregistered block warning, not block settings.
if ( ! selectedBlock || isSelectedBlockUnregistered ) {
if ( ! blockType || ! selectedBlockClientId || isSelectedBlockUnregistered ) {

If I don't add blockType check it fails the e2e test, not sure why.

Things tested well in my smoke tests. The changes seem fine, I left a possible improvement. I would prefer if we had a conclusion on the cause why ! blockType is needed, but the check does not seems ilogical so I dont' think it is a blocker.

I think we should use getBlockType from select ( 'core/blocks' ); instead of the wp.blocks one, otherwise when there are updates to the blocks our withSelect function may not be executed.
This may be related to the reason end 2 end tests were failing without the blockType check.

I agree. I think we should avoid relying on getBlockType (the global) entirely but I didn't want to create inconsistency between components now. This should be done as a dedicated PR at some point.
