[Releasing] Should we make Qt 5.3.0-1 to fix one Android bug?

Just when we were about to release Qt 5.3.0 there was a bug reported affecting future releases of Android: https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-39042

It was too late to take it in to Qt 5.3.0 any more, but now we have a fix merged to stable: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,85647

The planned changes to branching may cause it to be difficult to get full Qt 5.3.1 done very fast. We are also getting other feedback on the Qt 5.3.0 release, which would be good to fix to Qt 5.3.1 as well in the coming weeks.

Thus, I propose we could now make Qt 5.3.0-1 update for Android content only to take in that fix. Users can then update their Qt based applications already now, without waiting for Qt 5.3.1. Since this does not affect any other platform than Android, this fix should be quite safe one to do.
