BP Blocks: introduce a new $metadata argument to use WP Block API v2

The bp_register_block() array of arguments now accepts a $metadata
argument to inform about the path to a block block.json dir path. If
it's used this function is now is simple wrapper of WordPress's
register_block_type_from_metadata() function.
