Fix documentation for ReuseAddressHint on Unix.
The code says (for Q_OS_UNIX) if ((mode & QAbstractSocket::ShareAddress) || (mode & QAbstractSocket::ReuseAddressHint)) socketEngine->setOption(QAbstractSocketEngine::AddressReusable, 1); so clearly ReuseAddressHint does the same as ShareAddress, which is: setting SO_REUSEADDR.
