QmlJS: Fix crash in QML reformatter

This fixes a tack overflow caused by an exponential
number of combination tested.

We try to find the optimal solution for line breaks by brute force.
Unfortunately this leads to a stack overflow, if two many
line breaks are possible.

This patch limits the number of possible line break positions to 11.
If there are more possible line breaks we remove every second one.

This seems to be a reasonable enough heuristic and we deal with
a corner case anyway.
