Modernize cmake build
Add a CMake super project that includes the shiboken2, PySide2 and pyside2-tools subprojects, so that it's possible to build everything from Qt Creator (or any other IDE that supports CMake) with minimal set up effort, and thus inform the IDE CMake integration of all relevant files, for easier code editing, navigation and refactoring. This also lays the foundation for allowing 3rd parties to use the shiboken2 generator to generate custom modules. This is achieved by eliminating various hardcoded paths for libraries and include directories. Start using CMake targets throughout the build code to correctly propagate link flags and include dirs for libshiboken and shiboken2 executable targets. Same for the libpyside target. Generate two separate cmake config files (build-tree / install-tree) that can be used with find_package(Shiboken2), to make sure that the PySide2 project can be built as part of the super project build. This is currently the only way I've found to allow the super build to work. Note that for the build-tree find_package() to work, the CMAKE_MODULE_PATH has to be adjusted in the super project file. The generated config files contain variables and logic that allow usage of the installed shiboken package in downstream projects (PySide2). This involves things like getting the includes and libraries for the currently found python interpreter, the shiboken build type (release or debug), was shiboken built with limited api support, etc. Generate 2 separate (build-tree and install-tree) config files for PySide2, similar to how it's done for the shiboken case, for pyside2-tools to build correctly. Install shiboken2 target files using install(EXPORT) to allow building PySide2 with an installed Shiboken2 package (as opposed to one that is built as part of the super project). Same with PySide2 targets for pyside2-tools subproject. Make sure not to redefine uninstall targets if they are already defined. Add a --shorter-paths setup.py option, which would be used by the Windows CI, to circumvent creating paths that are too long, and thus avoiding build issues. Output the build characteristics / classifiers into the generated build_history/YYYY-MM-DD_AAAAAA/build_dir.txt file, so it can be used by the test runner to properly filter out blacklisted tests. This was necessary due to the shorter paths options. Fix various issues regarding target includes and library dependencies. Remove certain duplicated cmake code (like limited api check and build type checks) in PySide2, given that that information will now be present in the exported shiboken2 config file. Include a short README.cmake.md file that describes how to build the super project.
