BrowserView: Allow dragging of window to screen above menubar #10661

When implementing the BrowserView drag behavior, I was clever and added logic to prevent the window from being dragged underneath the menubar. Downside: If there's a screen above the menubar, users won't be able to drag the window there.

This code change is only relevant when Electron is built with an SDK < 10.11 (which Electron currently does, sadly). If built with >= 10.11, you'll get native drag behavior. Below, you'll get this fix: It'll check if there's a screen above the menubar, and if so, allow dragging it there.

If you're wondering why all of this is necessary: The BrowserView is above everything else, including all the layers that NSApplication and NSWindow add to our window.

Thanks for fixing this! I thought I already reviewed this, guess I never submitted it... Sorry for the delay.
