      Description

      Qt documentation assume, that if a class isn't marked explicitly as thread-safe / reentrant the user can't assume it is. However, in fact Qt docs for many classes don't mark them as e.g. reentrant, while they are reentrant in fact. Examples of classes that miss the reentrancy marker:

      QLocalServer
      QLocalSocket
      QEventLoop

      Most probably there are more.
