Fix handling of HEAD requests in WP_REST_Server

HEAD request handling has been broken in all of the 2.x betas because, surprise, there was no test coverage for it.

The intended behavior for a HEAD request is to use the GET callback method. See how this is handled in 1.2.4

public function dispatch() {
        switch ( $this->method ) {
            case 'HEAD':
            case 'GET':
                $method = self::METHOD_GET;

We should do equivalent in the REST server infrastructure.
