Use QFileDialog for selecting directories

Fabian Vogt requested to merge work/fvogt/dirselect into master

KFileWidget is not as good at selecting directories as KDirSelectDialog from plasma-integration. On top of that, directory selection appears to be entirely broken currently.

Use KDirSelectDialog through QFileDialog if possible.

BUG: 437505

It appears like chromium switched to using the portal API by default now, and a downstream user found that it's no longer possible to select directories:

Note: I didn't test whether this works with chromium so far, I'm asking the reporter for some feedback. Downstream reporter reported success with chromium.

An RFC fix for KFileWidget is pending: frameworks/kio!713
