Document the BC break of viewportSizeHint() in itemviews
Since users were not supposed to use this feature at all, just live with the BC break, but document it. In order to prevent possible problems in the future, introduce dummy overrides in QAbstractItemView and QListView as well. Also, fix the visibility of the overrides (it's protected, not public). Task-number: QTBUG-34667 Change-Id: Ib4554ae5e1e7d3ce4ea8e8703e1fea9e2231edb0 Reviewed-by: Marc Mutz <>
