Qt6: Fix uninitialized meta objects on Windows
Windows has a problem relating to cross-DLL variable relocations: they are not supported. Since QMetaObject's link to the parent class is done via a pointer, every QMetaObject in a DLL or in the EXE that derives from a class from another DLL (such as QObject) will be dynamically initialized. This commit changes the meta object pointers in QMetaObject::d from raw pointers to a wrapper class SuperData, which is almost entirely source- compatible with the pointer itself. On all systems except for Windows with Qt 6, it's binary compatible with the current implementation. But for Windows with Qt 6, this commit will store both the raw pointer and a pointer to a function that returns the QMetaObject, with one of them non-null only. For all meta objects constructed by moc, we store the function pointer, which allows the staticMetaObject to be statically intialized. For dynamic meta objects (QMetaObjectBuilder, QtDBus, QtQml, ActiveQt), we'll store the actual raw pointer. [ChangeLog][QtCore][QMetaObject] Some internal members of the QMetaObject class have changed types. Those members are not public API and thus should not cause source incompatibilities. The macro QT_NO_DATA_RELOCATION existed in Qt 4 but was called Q_NO_DATA_RELOCATION and only applied to Symbian. It was removed in commit 24a72c4efa929648d3afd95b3c269a95ecf46e57 ("qglobal: Remove symbian specific features").
