#8070: prefer GetTickCount64 over GetTickCount

Comment (by raad@…):

 Please find attached a patch with a run-time check for GetTickCount64
 availability. Please note that ticks_type is always 64-bit with this patch
 and I don't think it's possible to implement this header-only without a
 huge run-time overhead, so there is a new cpp file.

 Alternatively, for the correct compile-time check for the target Windows
 version, you could just revert commit
 3ac48bdd65c4713438779e65a3f5ee4324a03b55 and add a macro like
 BOOST_THREAD_WIN32_DONT_USE_GET_TICK_COUNT_64 for those who are not
 willing to set their target Windows version correctly via _WIN32_WINNT. Or
 only let the user set BOOST_THREAD_WIN32_HAS_GET_TICK_COUNT_64.
