ICU4C: Make USE_WINDOWS_LCID_MAPPING_API compile-time configurable

Description

On Windows platforms, ICU was changed in to use the Windows platform APIs for LCID<->"Locale Name" mappings.
However this isn't configurable at all, which leads to some users of ICU (ex: Chrome) making custom patches to the source to turn this off.
It would be better/nicer if this was a compile-time configurable setting, then custom patches that modify the source code directly wouldn't be needed, they could just set a flag.
