 Core: introduce the `bp_is_running_wp()` function

 This helper function checks WordPress version and is used by BuddyPress to
 ensure backward-compatibility when a WordPress feature/function is not yet
 available on the WordPress site BuddyPress is running on.

 We have standardized the way we were doing these checks so far by
 replacing these with the use of this new `bp_is_running_wp()` function. It
 will help us to identify backward-compatibility chunks when we bump our
 minimum WP version.

 `bp_is_running_wp()` accepts two arguments:
 - the WP version, in "PHP-standardized" format.
 - the comparison operator. It defaults to `>=`.
