      Description

      We have a platform-dependent macro expansion for QT_DEPRECATED(_X) when there's a C++14 attribute standardised [1].

      This is important for certain corner cases that are supported by [1] but not supported by platform-specific extentions: I stumbled upon an issue trying to deprecate an enum value, e.g.

      enum {
        NewValue,
        OldValue QT_DEPRECATED_X("foobar"),  // causes compile errors now
        OtherValue,
      };
