Improved timer implementation

The new timer model is formalized as using a separate thread to handle timer callbacks. This was the case on almost every platform before, but it's now a requirement, and simplifies the implementation and makes it perform consistently across platforms.

Goals:
* Minimize timer thread blocking
* Dispatch timers as accurately as possible
* SDL_AddTimer() and SDL_RemoveTimer() are completely threadsafe
* SDL_RemoveTimer() doesn't crash with a timer that's expired or removed
