wasm: add public API for local file access
The web sandbox restricts access to the local file system, which means Qt needs new public API to provide such access to applications. This adds a new static, asynchornous getOpenFileContent() function to QFileDialog, which will show a file dialog, read the file contents once a file has been selected, and finally call the user-provided callback with the selected file name and file data. auto fileReady = [](const QString &fileName, const QByteArray &fileContents) { // Process file } QFileDialog::getOpenFileContent("*.*", fileReady); This API can be expanded in at least two ways in the future: allow reading multiple files, and allow file streaming by returning a QOIDevice.
