Raise WordPress required version to 6.1

Description (last modified by imath)

As explained here, I suggest to raise the WP required version to WordPress 6.1.
At first I thought of raising it to 5.9 (as some important block theme functions were introduced in it), but it's only 2.1% of active installs.
Then I thought about raising it to 6.0 but choosing 6.1 would allow us to simplify GitHub actions and remove a dev dependency to wp-phpunit composer package. See #9053

Raise WordPress required version to 6.1

  • Do required WP version bumps.
  • Remove WP function/version checks when these were about WP version < 6.1.
  • Init the 14.0.0 deprecated functions file.
  • Update the GH PHP Unit Action and remove the 6.0 wp-phpunit/wp-phpunit composer package downgrade that was needed when testing WP version < 6.1.

Fixes #9051
