Enable QArrayData to reference external array data
By default, QTypedArrayData::fromRawData provides the same semantics as already exist in QByteArray and QString (immutable, sharable data), but more combinations are possible. In particular, immutable-unsharable leaves the data owner in control of its lifetime by forcing deep copies. As part of this, a new isMutable property is introduced in QArrayData. This could be taken to be implicit in statics that are initialized with a proper size but with alloc set to 0. QStringLiteral and QByteLiteral already did this, forcing re-allocations on resize even before the (static, thus shared) ref-count is considered. The isMutable property detaches data mutability and shared status, which are orthogonal concepts (at least in the unshared state). For the time being, there is no API to explicitly (re)set mutability, but statics and RawData mark data immutable.
