Doc: Mention exact Qt version the third party attributions apply to
We do add, remove or update third party code in minor releases, sometimes even in patch level releases. However, the documentation is supposed to be valid for all existing Qt 5 versions, but doing this for attributions would require infrastructure we don't have. Therefore rather make it explicit which Qt version the attributions apply to. Also mention since when Qt is available under LGPLv3 (starting with Qt 5.4).
