Atom is going to be upgraded to use Electron v4 (PR: #19373), and since that new version of Electron does not support OSX < 10.10, we need to make users of older OSX versions to stick to a version of Atom that uses Electron v3.


We're going to add some custom logic on the autoupdate backend to force clients on older OSX versions to stick to the latest Atom stable/beta/nightly version that uses Electron v3.

In order to do so, we need to send the os_version parameter to the autoupdate backend, which is what this PR is doing 馃槂
