Compat: Remove unnecessary api-request shim #5146

Previously: #4762
Related: #4950 (WordPress support explicitly updated)

This pull request seeks to remove the api-request JavaScript shim which had existed while WordPress 4.9 was in pre-release, in order to support the 4.8 stable release at the time. Since WordPress 4.9.x is now stable, this shim can now be removed. This effectively increases the minimum WordPress version supported by the Gutenberg plugin to 4.9.0.

Testing instructions:

Verify that the editor loads as expected, particularly that the api-request file is loaded correctly from the WordPress installation.

$wp_api_localized_data = $wp_scripts->get_data( 'wp-api', 'data' );
if ( false !== $wp_api_localized_data ) {
wp_add_inline_script( 'wp-api-request', $wp_api_localized_data, 'before' );
function gutenberg_fix_jetpack_freeform_block_conflict() {

Any particular reason to bring this back? or is this just a rebase issue?
