Subject: [PATCH] Add an automatic use of the ELF-versioned QtCore symbol

See the comment in the header for an explanation of what it does.

This trick is enabled for every single .o that is compiled, unless
QT_NO_VERSION_TAGGING is defined. The assembly expands to a COMDAT
section, which is mergeable by the linker, so only one copy of the
output is present in the ELF module.

This is enabled only for Linux and x86 / x86-64 / x32 due to the
requirement of writing assembly and relocations, so it needs to be
tested on each platform, which I have not done. It might work on
Solaris/x86, but again it requires testing. Support for other
architectures requires different assembly output and relocations and can
be added as needed, but they are not as important since this trick is
has most value on desktop systems.

+ * Ugly hack warning and explanation:
+ *
+ * This file causes all ELF modules, be they libraries or applications, to use the
+ * qt_version_tag symbol that is present in QtCore. Such symbol is versioned,
+ * so the linker will automatically pull the current Qt version and add it to
+ * the ELF header of the library/application. The assembly produces one section
+ * called ".qtversion" containing two pointer-sized values. The first is a
+ * relocation to the qt_version_tag symbol (which is what causes the ELF
+ * version to get used). The second value is the current Qt version at the time
+ * of compilation.
+ *
+ * There will only be one copy of the section in the output library or application.
