This now implemented in:

https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt/qt5/+/418785 (provisioning script)
https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt/qtbase/+/418799 (use UNC paths to local shares in tests)

Works nicely on a local minicoin Windows VM (except tst_qdiriterator, for the unrelated reason that the test tries to create a directory structure in the source tree of the test).
