      This adds a configuration file for clang-format [1] and a test file to
      demonstrate benefits and current problems with respect to Qt Creator's
      coding rules [2].
      This is based on clang-format from the llvm/clang 5.0 branch, which is
      about to be released soon in the next days/weeks (already behind
      Using clang-format for Qt Creator brings these advantages:
       * Enforce a bunch of coding rules by a simple tool/shortcut invocation.
       * Spend less review cycles for authors and reviewers regarding
         formatting. This helps especially for/with first-time contributors.
       * clang-format sorts includes and using declarations.
       * clang-format adds/updates namespace end comments, e.g.: } //
         namespace Foo
      See dist/clangformat/README.md for setup instructions und currently
      known issues.
