Update QSqlRelationalTableModel about reference table alias
The current documentation does not mention how the reference table name is aliased in the relational table model. This makes it difficult to use function setFilter(). This commit adds relevant information to the documentation. Task-number: QTBUG-15989 Change-Id: I02cbefb3f2b66c9772557a1fea3d93c2d1696ee9 Reviewed-by: Mark Brand <>
