crypto/x509: respect VerifyOptions.KeyUsages on Windows

When using the platform verifier on Windows (because Roots is nil) we
were always enforcing server auth EKUs if DNSName was set, and none
otherwise. If an application was setting KeyUsages, they were not being

Started correctly surfacing IncompatibleUsage errors from the system
verifier, as those are the ones applications will see if they are
affected by this change.

Also refactored verify_test.go to make it easier to add tests for this,
and replaced the EKULeaf chain with a new one that doesn't have a SHA-1

Thanks to Niall Newman for reporting this.

Fixes #39360
Fixes CVE-2020-14039
