Feature #6083: Hide a Bignum definition
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/6083#change-45456

----------------------------------------
Now, the struct RBignum which is a definition of Bignum in C is located in include/ruby/ruby.h.  It means we can't change implementation of Bignum.  For example, using GMP as Bignum representation.

I propose to move the struct RBignum definition from include/ruby/ruby.h to bignum.c.  I believe no one use struct RBignum directly (except core).

It has possibility to break binary compatibility.
