Optimize jQuery.type() for 2.0

I noticed in jQuery 2.0 jQuery.type has:


return typeof obj === "object" || typeof obj === "function" ?

class2type[ ] ....


Modern browsers no longer have the old browser issue of reporting regexes as typeof function, sothe `typeof obj === "function" guard can be removed.

Might be worth going through to see where we could use typeof directly now.

Revert "Fix #13291, no longer need the functionish-regex guard."

Turns out this is still needed by Safari 5.1, which we're still supporting.

This reverts commit c4b1da40075532e4f14821b1519ae0ef6665bf1e.
