As discussed on Matrix our assumption is that Plasma 5 and 6 aren't
packaged together, a single version of Plasma should be packaged only with
the same version.

I've bumped the soversions in libksysguard now. (I'll look at doing the
KFification for kuserfeedback too.)

I've also release noted that ksysguard the app is dead and should be
removed from distros, it hasn't been released for over 2 years and hasn't
been ported.
