Applying a path that fixes a bug in QT 5.15.2

There was a bug in QT 5.15.2 that results in app crash on Android 5.1 and a patch:

Submodule qtbase contains modified content

-                JniOnLoadPtr jniOnLoad = reinterpret_cast<JniOnLoadPtr>(dlsym(pHnd, "JNI_OnLoad"));
+                JniOnLoadPtr jniOnLoad = reinterpret_cast<JniOnLoadPtr>(dlsym(hnd, "JNI_OnLoad"));
                 if (jniOnLoad && jniOnLoad(QtAndroidPrivate::javaVM(), nullptr) == JNI_ERR) {
                     dlclose(hnd);
-                    pHnd = nullptr;
+                    hnd = nullptr;
                 }
             }
 #endif

Looks like it was simply a typo and pHnd was replaced with hnd.

QT 5.15.3 where the bug was fixed is commercial so I applied the patch by myself (thanks to danilabagroff from stackoverflow.com):

git clone --recursive https://code.qt.io/qt/qt5.git --branch v5.15.2
cd qt5/qtbase/
git checkout -b my
cd ..
git apply /e/temp/android-qt5.15.1.patch
cd qtbase/
git diff
git commit -a -m "fixed QTBUG-84849 that results in app crash on Android 5.1"

Then I built QT for Android with the following commands:

set "JDK_ROOT=C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\jre\bin"
set "MINGW_ROOT=E:\PFiles\mingw-w64\x86_64-8.1.0-posix-seh-rt_v6-rev0\mingw64\bin"

WARNING: QDoc will not be compiled, probably because libclang could not be located. This means that you cannot build the Qt documentation.

Either ensure that llvm-config is in your PATH environment variable, or set LLVM_INSTALL_DIR to the location of your llvm installation.
On Linux systems, you may be able to install libclang by installing the libclang-dev or libclang-devel package, depending on your distribution.
On macOS, you can use Homebrew's llvm package.
On Windows, you must set LLVM_INSTALL_DIR to the installation path.

Qt is now configured for building. Just run 'mingw32-make'.
Once everything is built, you must run 'mingw32-make install'.
Qt will be installed into 'E:\Qt\Qt5.15.2\android'.

Prior to reconfiguration, make sure you remove any leftovers from
the previous build.
