[webkit-qt] Almost all webkit LayoutTests failing on Qt for Embedded Linux

Yes I read too fast :D.

I was talking about the API tests :D.

It's most likely that the layout tests will not pass as nobody
actually tried to make them pass. And it's not just about making them
pass, it's maintaining them too.

Though in the long term I'm not sure if it make sense to work on that.
As far as I understood the way Qt For Embedded Linux stands today is
dead/replace/deprecated with Lighthouse no?
