client API: send MPV_EVENT_SHUTDOWN only once
Before this change, mpv_wait_event() could inconsistently return multiple MPV_EVENT_SHUTDOWN events to a single mpv_handle, up to the point of spamming the event queue under certain circumstances. Change this and just send it exactly once to each mpv_handle. Some client API users might have weird requirements about destroying their state asynchronously (and not reacting immediately to the SHUTDOWN event). This change will help a bit to make this less weird and surprising.

and render_gl.h. The goal is allowing support for APIs other than
OpenGL. The old API is emulated with the new API.
