Bundle tzinfo-data on :x64_mingw (64-bit Ruby on Windows). #14720

On Windows, the default Rails 4.1.0 Gemfile includes the following line:

# Windows does not include zoneinfo files, so bundle the tzinfo-data gem
gem 'tzinfo-data', platforms: [:mingw, :mswin]

However, this doesn't match 64-bit Windows MinGW builds of Ruby (such as the x64 RubyInstaller build). Users on this platform will encounter a TZInfo::DataSourceNotFound exception starting Rails unless they manually alter their Gemfile.

This pull request adds :x64_mingw to the platforms, so that tzinfo-data is also used on 64-bit MinGW Ruby builds.

👍 Thanks! This is the only way to solve the tzinfo error in Windows.
