windows: Remove references to GetVersionExA (thanks, Andrew Pilley!).

"GetVersionExA is deprecated in windows 8.1 and above's SDK, causing a warning
when building against the win10 SDK. Attached patch cleans up the usage for a
warning-free build.

GetVersionExA was being used to test to see if SDL was running on win9x or
winnt. A quick chat with Ryan on twitter suggested that SDL doesn't
officially support win9x anymore, so the call to this can be outright removed.

As an aside, replacing the call to GetVersionExA with VerifyVersionInfoA (the
recommended path) would have been pointless, as VerifyVersionInfoA only
supports VER_PLATFORM_WIN32_NT and doesn't officially support any other value
for dwPlatformId currently. (And it's probable that win9x SDKs didn't have
VerifyVersionInfo* in them anyway.)"

Fixes Bugzilla #4019.

    25 /* IMPORTANT:
    26    This is the master switch to disabling the dynamic API. We made it so you
    27    have to hand-edit an internal source file in SDL to turn it off; you
    28    can do it if you want it badly enough, but hopefully you won't want to.
    29    You should understand the ramifications of turning this off: it makes it
    30    hard to update your SDL in the field, and impossible if you've statically
    31    linked SDL into your app. Understand that platforms change, and if we can't
    32    drop in an updated SDL, your application can definitely break some time
    33    in the future, even if it's fine today.
    34    To be sure, as new system-level video and audio APIs are introduced, an
    35    updated SDL can transparently take advantage of them, but your program will
    36    not without this feature. Think hard before turning it off.
