  Extra CMake Modules (ECM) is now versioned like KDE Frameworks, therefore it is now 5.9, while it was 1.8 previously.

I.e. applications looking up a framework only need its public dependencies, not the private ones.

  Fix possible crash when destroying a QSystemTrayIcon (triggered by e.g. Trojita), bug 343976
