Extensions can't ship plugins anymore, and flash (the only plugin we support) doesn't install in the app dir, so there's no point supporting any of this infrastructure.

I won't change pluginreg because that's more work than it's worth (ie we'll now write a useless byte for "is this plugin associated with an extension", which won't be a regression). We'll soon (in bug 1545123) stop needing to read this file for flash info anyway, at which point I may have to rev the pluginreg version anyway (though I might still try to avoid it).

While we're here, it seems XRE_EXTENSIONS_DIR_LIST will become unused once we excise this particular bit of plugin code, so we can ditch that, too.

Summary: Remove checks for plugins that are part of extensions and support for loading plugins from the app dir → Remove checks for plugins that are part of extensions and the app distribution dir provider
