Align QVariant::UserType and QMetaType::User
There is no point in keeping separate values which should mean the same. QVariant::UserType was used also to construct a valid, null QVariant, containing an instance of unknown custom type. The concept was strange and useless as there was no operation that could be done on such QVariant. Therefore it was dropped. Please note that the patch slightly changes behavior of different functions accepting a type id as parameter. Before QVariant::UserType was an invalid type from QMetaType perspective (id 127 was not assigned to any built-in type), but QMetaType::User points to the first registered custom type.
