 #!CommitTicketReference repository="" revision="52822"
 Query: Make sure `WP_Query::get_queried_object()` works for `author_name`
 before `::get_posts()` is run.

 Previously, the queried object with author data was not available before
 the posts loop when `author_name` is used in the query instead of
 `author`. With block themes, this use case appears to be more common to
 display the author name in the header.

 This commit adjusts the logic in `WP_Query::get_queried_object()` to fall
 back to the `author_name` field if `author` is not present, similar to how
 taxonomy slugs are handled.

 Follow-up to [1728], [3290], [10992].

 Props dd32, swissspidy, SergeyBiryukov.
 Fixes #55100.
