Re: [patch i386 windows]: Fix PR/52790 also required for workig upcoming cygwin x64 target

this patch fixes PR/52790 and supports for x64 Windows targets the use
of large and medium code-model.
This feature is required for upcoming new cygwin x64 target, which
uses full 48-bit available address-space of x64 Windows.
The cygwin-target depends on pseudo-relocation-feature, which operates
on instruction relocations.  This can lead for x86_64 to issues, due
instructions are in general signed-32bit-pc-relative relocated.  So
distances can become too wide for pseudo-relocation.
Due for functions we generate anyway on pe-coff targets jump-stubs, we
just need to make sure that variables are accessed via
reference-pointer-variables.  So we add for them in medium model
In large model we using for external (therefore possibly
pseudo-relocated) symbols also indirect-addressing via refptr-stubs.

To avoid same issues as we noticed on cygwin64, I want to change
code-model default to medium also for native-windows x64 target.
