qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.2.0 alpha 2, on Windows 10 version 1809

What is the problem

Unable to adjust qbittorrent.exe CPU priority (on Windows) from within qBittorrent itself.

What is the expected behavior

To have a "CPU priority" setting, under the qBittorrent section of "Advanced Options", when running qBittorrent on Windows OS.

Extra info

PR [#11426] (by qBT team member @Chocobo1) added an "Advanced Option" for end users to adjust the Windows memory priority for the qBittorrent process.

However, Microsoft Windows has three different resource priority types for each running process. Memory priority is one, and the others are CPU priority and I/O priority.

I am requesting that qBittorrent have an "Advanced Option" to adjust Windows CPU priority, in addition to the existing setting for Windows memory priority.

This way, I would not have to launch an external program (or use start command trickery) to make priority adjustments to the qBittorrent process.
