macOS: Mark QFileDialog::DontConfirmOverwrite as unsupported
The native NSSavePanel does not have an option corresponding to DontConfirmOverwrite. Qt has a workaround where the save-file-name is temporarily given a prefix in order do bypass the overwrite check, however this has stopped working on recent versions of macOS. (Confirmed on macOS 11) Users who want to use DontConfirmOverwrite should use Qt’s file dialog instead.
