[Development] Qt5.1 new snapshot

The problem was that we were not able to build QtCreator with the latest changes in the Mac environment and that's why we cannot create all packages for RC2. After a short study it comes clear that this problem affects to all applications using private headers. We find fix for this issue really soon and after discussion in the Digia release team & management we made decision to postpone the RC2 one day again because of that build issue.  Unfortunately there isn't bug report for this build break at all; Everyone were focused to solve it. But this change fixes the issue: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,60080

We get few other changes( listed in the original mail) in as well. Those was agreed to be in Final so actually it is better to get those already in RC2 (but of course those weren't blocking the release).
