[webkit-qt] Rebasing QtWebKit 2.0 on current trunk?

The Symbian guys seems most affected by changes and it often breaks
something for them. We could let them compare the next release of
qtwebkit2.0 and trunk and if trunk is stable enough for them, we could
decide to redo our qtwebkit2.0 branch.

I'm OK with that, but we need to make sure that the people testing
Symbian and Web Runtime are OK with that.
