Remove references to to/fromAscii in QString and QByteArray main docs
Those functions are about to be deprecated and shouldn't be referred to in the main documentation. Since they were temporarily changed to mean UTF-8, this is not a behaviour change. The next commit will update the code to match the documentation.
