 Query: Allow the hyphen-prefix-for-search-exclusion feature to be disabled
 by filter.

 WordPress 4.4 introduced "hyphen exclusion" for search terms, so that
 "foo -bar" would return posts containing "foo" AND not containing "bar".
 The new filter 'wp_query_use_hyphen_for_exclusion' allows developers
 to disable this feature when it's known that their content will contain
 semantically important leading hyphens.

 Props chriseverson, choongsavvii.
 Fixes #38099.
