Remove remnants of widget/qt
With the landing of bug 1282866, we no longer have code to support the qt widget toolkit. At the time I didn't go through the codebase and remove all the references to MOZ_WIDGET_QT, a preprocessor token which will never be defined any more. Here are all the references: http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/search?q=moz_widget_qt&case=false®exp=false&path= Getting rid of these is mostly (entirely?) a mechanical change: For something like http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/f43c9e0ffa92e72dbdbcbf57eecf04a43d46da63/accessible/base/TextAttrs.cpp#662 We need to get rid of the MOZ_WIDGET_QT block, and use #if instead of #elif at line 644. The more common case is http://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/f43c9e0ffa92e72dbdbcbf57eecf04a43d46da63/browser/base/content/browser.xul#566 Where we just remove the `|| defined(MOZ_WIDGET_QT)` bit. I'm going to call this a good first bug, because although it's a lot of changes, I don't think there's a lot of hard decisions to make.
I'm going to take this, for a few reasons: - I like removing unused code. - I've grappled with widget/-wide changes before, which require updating unused widget/ code, so I'm doubly happy to remove unused widget/ code. - There's quite a bit more to be removed than just the MOZ_WIDGET_QT conditional blocks. E.g. there are still Qt-specific files remaining, moz.build changes required, etc., so it's harder than it first seems.

Actually it seems there are still some references in old-configure.in: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/23dc78b7b57e9f91798ea44c242a04e112c37db0/old-configure.in#1778 https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/23dc78b7b57e9f91798ea44c242a04e112c37db0/old-configure.in#6154 (so the AC_SUBST(QT_SURFACE_FEATURE) can probably go away as well)

> (so the AC_SUBST(QT_SURFACE_FEATURE) can probably go away as well) Good catch! That AC_SUBST must stay because gfx/cairo/cairo/src/cairo-features.h.in contains a |@QT_SURFACE_FEATURE@| line, but a couple of related things in that file can be removed. I also found some more stuff in widget/ to remove, dougt please check.
BTW I will combine the two patches before landing.
