CMake: Refactor handling of static plugins
Extract common static plugin handling functionality into a separate QtPublicPluginHelpers.cmake file which is loaded by the Qt6 package. Split the code into smaller functions that will be re-used by each templated file, rather than copy pasting the same code into each QtFooPlugins.cmake file. As a drive-by, handle QtFeatures.cmake and QtFeaturesCommon.cmake as public helper files just like QtPublicPluginHelpers.cmake. This makes it clearer that the functions are available outside the internal Qt build and also provides a way for not dumping new helper functions into Qt6CoreMacros.cmake. Task-number: QTBUG-92933 Change-Id: Id816ef009b4fac1cd317d3ef23f21b3530028067 Reviewed-by: Joerg Bornemann <>
