Ports KSplashQML to Qt5 and strips any XLib stuff. Martin G. suggested to try if it would simply work without XLib/XCB bits at all and it does work in testing mode, I'm unsure if it also works after actual login, but I don't see why it wouldn't.

KSplash was also receiving the stage messages via XAtoms, which I replaced with simple DBus interface. That means that all the parts in the login sequence need to be updated (I'll do it) to emit dbus signal instead of sending X message. I used the same API as the XAtoms were using, but let me know if you think this could be changed. In some future I'd probably also change the stages resolution as it's not too robust and does not help paralelization much. I have a plan in my head but that's for another commit.

I'd also like to remove the old KSplashX and port its default theme to QML and provide together with KSplashQML as "Classic" or "KDE 4" theme.

Theme successfully loads, displays fullscreen (Plasma panels are not covered, not sure why), all stages passes, then it terminates itself.
