Deprecate QFont::lastResortFamily() and QFont::lastResortFont()
These functions have not been used by the font selection algorithm in Qt 5. Calling lastResortFamily() always gave you "helvetica" and lastResortFont() would actually crash. Since we cannot remove them before Qt 6, we deprecate them for now and update the documentation to give a more accurate description of how the font matching works in Qt 5. Note that in the non-native QFontDialog, it tries to implement its own font matching algorithm and therefore was calling lastResortFamily(). Since fixing QFontDialog is not within the scope of this patch, I have just replaced the call by "helvetica" directly, so that it will continue to behave the same. [ChangeLog][QtGui][Text] Deprecated QFont::lastResortFamily() and QFont::lastResortFont() which are not in use in Qt 5 and did not provide any useful information.
